      Heather's Answer

      "Pediatrics is truly rewarding in that we have kids with illnesses of varying degrees. Sometimes they come to us with chronic, debilitating conditions. Still, they always find a way to smile and play no matter how tough it gets. Kids are so resilient."

      Darby's Answer

      "I think I could say more than one thing fuels my passion for pediatrics. There is just something about the feeling I get when I can help a child begin to recover and be back to his happy, playful self. It is a very rewarding feeling."

      Darby's Answer

      "Sometimes patients will come into our unit on a gurney, and they're weak with multiple cognitive and functional deficits and at their worst. They're often with us for months. To see our patients progress and show measurable improvement is extremely rewarding. The bonds we form not only with our patients but with the families are very special."
