Baby JoJo’s Family


Mother, Nicey, knew that baby JoJo was going to be born with challenges.  She was only expecting him to be born with Down’s syndrome, but he was also born with only 1 heart valve.  Surgeons worked to effectively “split” his one valve into two in order to enable his heart to effectively receive and pump out blood.  This family joins us from Minden, LA and they spent 61 nights at RMHC while JoJo recovered from heart surgery.  Nicey and her husband have 2 other children at home and remain hopeful for JoJo, whose real name she says means, “God has healed!”
