On Jackson Sullivan’s third day of life, his parents learned that their tiny son had suffered a stroke. Dr. Ednea Simon, a pediatric neurologist, took charge of the struggling newborn’s care during his month-long stay at Swedish. Dr. Simon closely monitored Jackson’s progress and became more optimistic as each day passed.
Today, Jackson is 2 years old and learning to walk despite a neuromuscular disorder. His mother, Alisa Bacon-Sullivan, credits Dr. Simon’s “positive energy” and continuing expert care for Jackson’s gains. “Dr. Simon has been amazing,” Alisa says.
