After six weeks as a normal, healthy baby, Emma McGovern suffered a cardiac arrest and stopped breathing. Doctors resuscitated her, but breathing difficulties kept her in the ICU for months. Tests revealed Emma had a genetic condition so rare that she’s one of just a handful of people to be diagnosed. Though needing oxygen treatment twice a day and medication every three hours, the 9-month-old is finally home with her family.
