CDH International would like to thank Dr. Robert Fleming with Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital for bringing hope to so many CDH families. Brittaney Dalton, mom to cherub Athena, had this to share about Dr. Fleming:
“After Athena had her appointments we went to visit the NICU. Luckily we ran into her primary Neonatologist, Dr. Fleming. She had so many doctors that loved her but this man right here is her absolute favorite.
He played such a huge role in her success, he would always be in her room rocking her and snuggling her, and he did everything in his power to make sure she came home. I cannot even express how much he means to our family.
He even got caught by the nurses showing Athena her first movie, the little mermaid. He said she needed a redheaded princess to look up to. I cried because it was the sweetest thing ever.
If anyone’s babies need a neonatologist, go to Cardinal Glennon and ask for Dr. Fleming.
We love you doc!!! Thank you for every thing!”
