Early Diagnosis Making a World of Difference

By CHI Health November 16, 2009 Posted in: Patient Stories
Grant Rimiller is a typical 16-month-old boy. He is active and is developing as he should. You would never guess that Grant was diagnosed with a very rare degenerative disease during his first weeks of life at the NICU. Grants parents, Teri and Eric Rimiller are thankful to the staff at Bergan Mercy for detecting his condition so early. They attribute early intervention in Grant's disease to the prevention of many debilitating conditions.
