The Doctors September 13 2012
On The Doctors Wednesday, September 13 2012, we’ll hear about four incredible medical stories that are sure to inspire all. All of the Doctors face incredible challenges every single day, and unfortunately, not every patient can be saved from a life-threatening situation or a debilitating problem. But these stories exist as examples that miracles can occur, and we should never give up hope.
The Doctors: Carly’s Story
Even when she was a baby, Carly’s parents knew that there was something different about their child. Carly’s twin sister, Taryn, had been developing normally, while Carly still could not speak or make any sounds at all.
Carly was eventually diagnosed with a severe case of autism, as well as a condition called oral motor apraxia, which would stop her from ever being able to speak. As Carly grew up, her parents lost hope, and believed that their daughter would never be able to communicate.
However, Carly’s entire life changed when an incredible new technology gave her the ability to speak through an electronic voice. After a life of silence, Carly has now shared her story with a book called Carly’s Voice. Don’t miss Carly on The Doctors September 13 to hear her incredible story, plus learn more about autism.
The Doctors: Sepsis, Dementia, and More
Carly’s story isn’t the only miraculous tale we’ll learn on The Doctors September 13. We’ll also meet Shannon, a young mother who developed sepsis and went into a life-threatening coma. Although Doctors gave her less than a 5% chance of ever recovering, Shannon woke up after three weeks of being on life support.
