Jordan’s sudden cardiac arrest story

Jordan Schoen was only 17 when he collapsed on the basketball court from a sudden cardiac arrest. Learn how the system of care saved his life and why this experience drove his family to give back to their community.

I get to look back at all the things I’ve accomplished over the past four years and just be thankful about it.

Restoring form, function and hope

Emily’s jaw replacement

In 2007, Emily began experiencing muscle spasms in her jaw. She was eventually diagnosed with a rare disorder called Parry-Romberg syndrome, which causes the slow deterioration of the skin and soft tissue in half the face1. Watch Emily as she shares how after years of pain, avoiding talking and relying on liquid diets, her surgeon not only restored her function but helped her feel beautiful again.

To have [the procedure] be successful and to be functional [with] no pain was just an answer to prayer.
