Trigger Warning with Killer Mike is a new Netflix original documentary series that is innovative, impressive and incredibly thought-provoking. If anyone (aside from Killer Mike himself) stands out in this six-part series, it would be Mario Pagan.

Preemie born more than 3 YEARS ago has gone home from hospital

A Utah girl is finally going home after spending the first three years of her life in a hospital in Ohio.

Zariah Donovan was born prematurely at just 23 weeks, six days gestation in September 2015.

During her time in the NICU, she developed such a serious lung disease that doctors told her parents, Shawn Donovan and Vilayvone Thipsouvan, that she had a zero percent chance of survival. 

Zariah was took weak to go home and no medical center near the family could provide the care that she needed.

The family learned of a specialized program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital – 1,700 miles away – and agreed to admit her.

After years spent in physical, occupational and speech therapy, Zariah’s lungs finally grew strong enough and she was cleared to go home.
