There’s no shortage of cool patients in these parts, and I just met another who has CHOC to thank for a bright future.
Pacer’s first family meal didn’t happen until he was 4 years old. Until then, he ate through a feeding tube, never experiencing a Thanksgiving feast, Halloween candy or birthday cake. But thanks to his commitment and five weeks of treatment at CHOC’s Multidisciplinary Feeding Program, Pacer learned to eat, and now he can down more chicken fingers than this always hungry bear!
Meet Pacer in this video, and hear from his parents, Quinn and Mekell, about why they traveled all the way from Montana to Orange County to get Pacer the treatment he needed to ensure a bright future.
