Genomic sequencing led to treatment that dramatically reduced Savannah’s seizures. Yukon, a seizure response dog, is trained to assist her when she has one. Read her remarkable story.

Our young patients inspire us each and every day. When faced with a chronic illness, they show courage. When battling a life-threatening disease, they call upon their strength. When there are setbacks, they show resilience. And through it all — and despite the many challenges — they never give up hope.

Here, we are proud to share stories of these amazing kids and their life-changing care at Rady Children’s.

The stories were originally published in The San Diego Union-Tribune Kids’ NewsDay, a special edition of The San Diego Union-Tribune. The last issue was published in 2015.
