Watch as Steven removes his trach for the final time, after several surgeries to repair his airway at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “Removing the trach was such a big step for him because it affected his body image, his self-esteem. Getting the trach out allowed all of that to flourish; he didn’t feel like he was so different anymore.”
