This is the story of an incredibly courageous girl named Tru Wende Beare, born prematurely at 14 weeks but who survived and is now a true beauty. When she entered the world, Tru weighed only one pound and was the smallest baby the doctors had ever seen.
Unfortunately, this meant that Tru had to spend a lot of time in the hospital, where the doctors at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, Canada, did their best to fight for her life.
Her mother and father prayed to God and hoped for the best. They somehow knew that their little girl would survive and looked forward to holding her in their arms. Mom was able to touch her precious treasure after only 11 days, and dad could only hold her when Tru was 54 days old.
Tru spent 71 days in an incubator before finally being transferred to a crib. That’s when her life started getting better day by day.
During the four months in the hospital, little Tru faced many challenges and managed to overcome numerous conditions.
Imagine having to battle necrotizing enterocolitis, two blood clots, chronic lung disease, MRSA, retinopathy, two blood infections – including sepsis – a congenital heart defect, and seven blood transfusions at such a young age.
But as it turned out, nothing was impossible for this little warrior who wanted to live and be near mom and dad.
Today, Tru is four years old and incredibly cute. Who would have thought that this beauty weighed only one pound at birth?
Furthermore, she is a big sister and a true inspiration to many. She is the perfect example that nothing is impossible and that the only choice we have in life, no matter how difficult things may be, is to never stop fighting.
We hope she has an amazing life and achieves everything she sets her mind to. She has already proven that she is invincible, and we would love for her to maintain this attitude in the years to come.
