Danielle's story

Born on December 3rd of 2021, Danielle was a perfectly healthy baby. But things took a devastating turn in the early morning hours of December 4th, less than 24 hours of Danielle’s life. She was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s disease – a condition that affects the large intestine and Mowat-Wilson’s Syndrome – a genetic condition so rare that only about 500 children in the whole world have it.In 2022, Danielle had a failed colostomy which brought her into a septic shock and a very bad wound. Which resulted in her finding her Ranken Jordan! Danielle’s mom, Carole, describes Ranken Jordan as the literal “bridge” before home care. She is happy knowing that her daughter is happy, loved, and safe at Ranken Jordan. At Ranken Jordan, Danielle has made improvements in strengthening her core, roll over on her own, and she is even learning to hold herself up. Danielle loves babbling, blowing raspberries, and watching her grandpa’s videos.
