More Knowledge, More Miracles

COMMITTED TO CLOSING THE CRITICAL CARE GAP IN THE U.S. AND INTERNATIONALLY
 
 

Not Just a Number

In October 2020, Maria Young — an active 41-year-old woman — arrived at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, with COVID-19 and double pneumonia. A staggering 130 days later, Maria returned to her family. At the hospital, she spent 69 days on ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, a form of life support) and 70 days on a ventilator. Maria was lucky to be at a hospital with advanced technologies and experienced doctors. The mission of Maria’s Miracle is to help others around the U.S. and world receive the same level of care by supporting advanced critical care and ECMO training programs. Maria’s Miracle also aims to distribute accurate information about COVID-19 and to support families with loved ones facing extended ICU stays and ECMO support.
