Little "Warrior" Preemie Winning Fight For Life

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.

seriously? wtf? this is what's wrong with our health care system today. veterns who fought for our freedoms are denied care while this couple and it is one of many who for whatever reason were unable to procreate so modern medicine helps them conceive and give birth to a baby that would otherwise have died society is now spending millions just to get this child to the point where it may live on it's own but it will most likely always have health issues! and who's paying for all this? surly not the parents! what a f'd up society we live in! Not everyone was ment to have Kids! look around!

Who are you to judge whether these two should be parents, or to comment on whether or not they are paying for the child's healthcare? Or to insult someone because their opinion differs from yours?
