    Colbea, Cooper & Chase

    It was November 3, 2008, when Colbea, Cooper and Chase were born after only 23 weeks and 4 days gestation. It was a bittersweet day. Our babies were here, but much too soon. How could this happen when our first son Tyler, who was only 11 months old at the time, was a full term baby? We were given the grim statistics of one child born at 23 weeks and the decreasing survival rates for triplets born at their gestational age. Thankfully the Saint Barnabas NICU is one of the best units in the country. When our babies were born they were unable to breathe on their own, their eyes were fused shut and ...

    Just two months after my kidney transplant last summer, I was at the driving range swinging a golf club. I felt great! And, second only to my younger sister who selflessly donated her kidney, I credit Saint Barnabas Medical Center and the care I received there with my continued healthy recovery. I am a golfer by nature. I began playing at seven years old. Golf is a game of repetition. You find out what works and you do it over and over. This is how I have approached my recovery thanks to my team at Saint Barnabas. They have always given me the detailed instructions and information I need to ...

Tristia immediately began hemodialysis and soon experienced numerous infections, missing a few hours of school two days each week, and spending Saturdays at the dialysis center. Her parents, along with ...

    Felice Carpenito enjoyed running so much that he often ran twice a day. But pounding the pavement for more than 20 years finally took its toll on the 75-year-old Verona resident. A few years ago, Felice started experiencing excruciating “bone on bone” knee pain during his daily runs at Verona Park. After running, he often had sharp pain in his knee. Felice dealt with the pain and tried to run through it. He sought medical treatment from local doctors who chalked up the pain to arthritis. Since he couldn’t find a doctor who was willing to perform knee surgery because “it wasn’t the right time,” ...
