Meet Our Most Courageous Children's Patients of 2018

Born with a number of debilitating health conditions, Sophia Weaver is still just like any 10-year-old in many ways. As we look back on 2018, read our favorite stories about some of our Levine Children’s Hospital patients like Sophia and many others.

Series Note: Every day at Atrium Health, we have the pleasure of serving our communities across the Carolinas – more than 31,750 patient encounters in fact, across all our facilities. And each day, we have the opportunity of meeting and caring for some of the most heartening patients that help us improve health, elevate hope and advance healing – for all.

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to take some time to reflect on some of our most inspiring patients – children. They may be small in stature but their joy, bravery and perseverance lifted our spirits time and time again.
