Teen who beat the odds thanks hospice nurse who cared for him as a baby

👩‍⚕️ 🍼 An 18-year-old high school student had the chance to thank the nurse who helped him survive a perilous birth by inviting her to his senior year photo shoot.

Doctors said Braden West would live only for a few months, but he’s made it all the way to his senior year at a Kentucky high school.

For Braden, shooting his senior high school photos is more than capturing memories, it’s a day he never expected to see.

“Just knowing 18 years ago, I was supposed to be dead, not alive — not breathing and then God brought life back into my life.”

He said thanks to a registered nurse named Michele Linn, he is alive.
