Premature Baby With 2% Survival Chance Is Given ‘Graduation Party’ Discharge By Hospital

A premature baby who had literally no chance of survival, was given a grand celebration party at the hospital when he was born.

The baby Cullen Porter was born at 22 weeks and weighed just 13.9 ounces after spending 160 days in the hospital.

For the party, the staff at the hospital dressed him up in a cap saying “graduates” and a gown from a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) located in Mobile, Alabama.

It was indeed a cause of celebration for the parents and the staff at the hospital because Cullen had a 2% chance of survival but the parents went to the University of South Alabama Hospital determined to get the best treatment for their son.

They had to commute for 160 days from their home in Florida to Alabama every day.

Thankfully now Cullen weighs a healthy 5 pounds and 11 ounces and has been released from the hospital.

Verse of the Day

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. — Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
