• Elijah's Story

    4,012 views 1 year ago
    Kuna High School junior, Elijah Minnick, was a healthy and active 17-year-old until he and his twin brother both came down with the flu at the end of December.

    His brother, Jonah, kicked the bug quickly, but Elijah still was not feeling well. Elijah had an appointment to see a doctor the Monday before New Year's, but the family had no way of predicting that by the weekend's end, Elijah would be teetering on the brink of organ failure with his life on the line.

    This is Elijah's story, and how caregivers in the pediatric intensive care unit at St. Luke's Children's Hospital fought to save the young man's life. Show less
