Kathy’s Story – Orthopedics

When Kathy accidentally dropped a firearm that went off, her elbow was shattered. A team of UAMS orthopedic experts worked together to rebuild the bone and graft a nerve to restore movement to Kathy’s arm.

Macee’s Story – NICU

Leilani is a normal, healthy child. But she was born weighing less than 2 pounds at birth. When her mom, Macee, went into premature labor, she was rushed to UAMS, where preemies have a greater chance of survival.

Five years later when Leilani’s sister was also born early, they knew Lucy would have the same experts fighting for her.

Sasha’s Story – Neurosurgery

At four months pregnant, Sasha arrived at UAMS in a coma. We gave her hope — and a baby son.

After a tangle of blood vessels ruptured in her brain, she was airlifted to UAMS, where neurosurgeons are on call 24/7. By the time she arrived she had no pulse and had to be revived twice.

The UAMS team of neurosurgeons, high-risk pregnancy specialists and other experts joined forces to save two lives.

Sean’s Story – Cancer / Myeloma

When Sean was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer, he didn’t have to travel the globe to find world-class care. He found it at UAMS.

As one of the largest centers in the world for myeloma and cancer research and care, UAMS provided the treatments needed to keep Sean in remission for years.

Just days after his surgery, Sidney was back to running his small business.
