Please consider supporting local kids by making a gift to the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center, your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Because of donors like you, our doors never close, ensuring that our teams of experts in many specialty areas are available to care for children, like Ben Graber, who has required advanced medical attention.
When Ben Graber, 11, of Niskayuna, had a seizure at school, his concerned family took him directly to Albany Med’s Emergency Department (ED). Seizures can indicate a wide range of problems from an isolated incident to epilepsy to a brain tumor -- and Albany Med has pediatric emergency care physicians with the expertise to determine their cause.
After a thorough work-up, these specialists found Ben’s seizure was the result of a rare condition that can trigger stroke in children. Moyamoya, as it’s known, is Japanese for “puff-of-smoke,” because of the peculiar appearance of the blood vessels in the brain.
Some potentially dangerous pediatric illnesses, like Moyamoya, are rare and have only subtle clues, so they require an expert and experienced pediatric provider to recognize them. Fortunately, the Grabers sought help at Albany, and today Ben continues to visit our children’s hospital for care that the Graber family entrusts to pediatric neurologist John Pugh, M.D.
Please tune in on May 4 and May 5 to hear how your support makes a difference for kids like Ben and his family. Put your money where the miracles are -- right here at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med!
