Going back to school is an annual event for most families, but for many brave kids, this milestone represents a major victory.
In honor of back-to-school season, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) put the spotlight on some inspiring patients who have overcome many obstacles to return to the classroom. The hospital created a photo series called “Back to School with Something New.”
“As you already know, most kids headed back to school this week with a little something new – new backpacks, pencils, and gear,” a CHOA representative told The Huffington Post. “But for many Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta patients, that something new came in the form of organs, casts, diagnoses, and more.”
