When Jennifer and Gannon Kupko of York Haven, Pa., won their battle to become parents with the help of in vitro fertilization, they didn't expect that their baby would have to struggle just to stay alive.
Their son, Gannon, was born 12 weeks prematurely last December. He weighed only 13 ounces and measured 10 inches long. He was so small that his dad's wedding ring could slide right up his arm, CBS 21 Harrisburg reports.
Since then, the boy's resilience has earned him the nickname "Warrior" Gannon.
His mom Jennifer says she was scared when she found out that her baby would be delivered 12 weeks early. Doctors at York Hospital were unable to reassure her that he would survive.
