For Kids LikeBenjamin

From the moment he was born, Benjamin suffered severe reflux, vomiting and diarrhea. He couldn't tolerate breast milk and most infant formula, and struggled to gain weight. His cry, which was more like a scream, was evidence that he was in excruciating pain. No doctor could pinpoint the problem. After months of anguish, his parents sought care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and got a diagnosis: food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), a rare food allergy. CHOP is one of the only hospitals in the country with a specialized clinic for FPIES. Care involved all-day evaluations, and during those long stays, the Patient and Family Services team kept Benjamin entertained with fun activities. "If it wasn't for them, he probably wouldn't have made it the whole day," says Benjamin's mom, Danielle. "They made sure he had whatever he wanted." With the removal of Benjamin's trigger foods, his symptoms have subsided. He is now happy, free of pain, gaining weight and thriving. Funds raised through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals support CHOP's Patient and Family Services programs, which help children like Benjamin and their families cope with the hospital experience.
