Partnering to Share Stories of Hope and Resiliency
Love Wisconsin, a new and increasingly popular online storytelling project, is partnering with UW Health this summer to bring you personal, inspiring stories of health, crisis, care, and resiliency.
Love Wisconsin’s vision is to promote connected, compassionate and engaged communities, one story at a time. Three inspiring stories featuring patients treated by the Carbone Cancer Center and American Family Children’s Hospital will be shared this summer on Love Wisconsin's online platforms.
UW Health is proud to support this partnership and help Love Wisconsin tell more positive stories from across our state.
High school sweethearts, Tiffany and Justin, planned and saved to start their family. By the time they had their two beautiful boys, things were looking up - their lives were going right to plan. Then, during a routine check up, they discovered that their youngest had a serious condition that would require a 7 hour long surgery on his heart. As terrifying as the road ahead appeared, Tiffany, Justin, Terran, and Isaac found strength in the quality of care they received, and along the way uncovered the support of their small town.
