Nurses at the Universitätsklinikum Mannheim, prepare two week old baby for surgery to remove his congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) in his right lung. He was born at 31 weeks and one day and the doctors did not know if he would make it. I'm happy to say he is a very happy, active and health 21 month old now. I hope this helps create awareness for this rare condition and to let others know you are not alone and miracles happen.
