Noah Jordan Brooks

Noah Jordan Brooks was born on April 28th 2017 at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston Salem, NC. He was only 22 weeks and 6 days when born. He weighed only 1 lb 2.3 oz and was given only a 5% survival rate. Noah was moved to Brenner Children’s Hospital on Sunday May 21st after it was found he had to have an emergency surgery due to a perforated bowel that was making Noah become septic. He would remain at the NICU at Brenner Children’s hospital until January 29th, 2018. A total of 272 days Noah spent between both hospitals with multiple surgeries including: hiatal hernia repair, retinopathy of prematurity due to long periods of necessary exposure to oxygen. He also stayed on a jet ventilator for an extended period of time due to his lungs immaturity. Noah had been intubated with breathing assistance from birth. He was diagnosed with bronchial pulmonary dysplasia or BPD, better known as chronic lung disease. As a result of unsuccessful breathing trials, to be proactive it was recommended that Noah receive a tracheostomy. Noah would be on record as the first child born as early as 22 weeks to not just survive, but leave Brenner Children’s Hospital. His case study has been shared at numerous Neonatal conferences and since his graduation, more children born at 22 weeks have also been discharged from Brenner. Noah has never spoken since being born but communicates in his own special way. As a result of his extended stay in the NICU, Noah did not have the ability to learn at stages of crawling and walking at 7, 8 and 9 months as most children do. He is almost 5 years old and is finally learning how to walk on his own. Noah’s story of perseverance has been shared on multiple platforms but most notably at the 2019 International Conclave of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc at Las Vegas. Phi Beta Sigma was celebrating its then 25 year relationship with March of Dimes and highlighted Noah’s story as Noah’s father is a member. “We are so very proud of Noah and are blessed to be chosen as this year’s Ambassador family for this years March for Babies walk.”- Brooks Family
