Chrissy was born extremely early at 26 weeks, but she had two things going for her: strength and the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Transport Team. Chrissy was born at an outside facility and was airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, where she underwent two life saving operations at 18 hours of life. She then continued to have three other surgeries within the next two years. Because of this life changing experience, her mother, Donna, decided to go to EMT school, then on the Paramedic school before joining the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Transport Team in 2005. Her own experience as a mother and a caregiver of sick and injured children has proved most valuable. Chrissy is a happy, healthy young woman that continues to help others with her warm charm and infectious laugh.
