    This is a high energy and very emotional presentation of Mattie’s journey through her parents’ eyes of the lessons they learned in supporting their baby’s right to fight for her own life. Doctors and supporters around the country rallied behind Mattie as she overcame obstacles of insurmountable odds. What makes Mattie’s story so compelling is the concurrence of 7 miracles in Matties life, any one of which would have changed her fate and the lessons that can be derived from each one. As her parents and two very busy and accomplished leaders in their industry, had to find a way to balance their life and careers in the worst of circumstances.
