    Thank you for highlighting the #7 treatment of therapeutic hypothermia. Our son is one of the miracles who received this treatment at CHOP with an outcome of absolutely no brain damage and is now a healthy, thriving 9 month old. We are so lucky to have these amazing medical facilities in our community!
