Damiano's Story

November 19, 2018

Damiano dreams of being an astronaut. Mom just wants him to have a chance at a normal life. The family came to CHOP because this adorable and spirited young boy has had chronic breathing problems.

When they came to Children’s Hospital for a second opinion they were surprised to find out that his lung disease was more serious than they initially thought. Mom is grateful that they moved him to CHOP and he is finally stable.

Mom thinks about the future and how Damiano’s lung disease will affect his future. Still she is amazed at how he jumps in to Tai-Kwando, smiles every day and goes for everything he wants in life.
