Welcome to Gianna's Page
Hi, I was just over a pound when I was born at 27 weeks old. I was rushed to the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where I was experiencing congestive heart failure.
Three weeks later my parents found out that I was partially blind and required immediate Laser eye surgery. I stayed in the hospital for seven months! For two years, I saw many specialists, including feeding, physio, speech and occupational therapy. They were all really nice. I continue to work hard at everything I do and now want to give back to help the NICU as they saved my life. They’re awesome!

Next week, Gianna will travel to Florida to meet other Champions from across North America. There she will celebrate her achievements, and meet with international media, to help showcase what an amazing hospital and research institute we have here in Manitoba.
