Mandy Feltner is the proud mommy of three children, her youngest, Patrick, being a gastroschisis survivor. Patrick has been through so very much and has come out strong and healthy despite his long term medical needs. While he has had 11 surgeries, is TPN dependent, diagnosed short bowel syndrome and needs extensive medical care daily, he is also the ray of sunshine in the Feltner home. Mandy is a registered nurse that has used her gastroschisis experience to propel her into the nursing field. She wants to help others in every way possible and never turns down a chance to help someone. As an Avery’s Angels hub leader she gets the opportunity to “pay it forward” to all of those that helped her son and her family.
