E17: A Breathtaking Miracle (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) with Ben Taplin

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

We are required to praise Hashem for every breath that we take.

Of course, we often don’t pay much attention to this critical task, as it is something that just happens for us without much thought. So take a deep breath and allow the appreciation to sink in.

In this episode, we will hear the breathtaking story from a living miracle who was on Ecmo for close to 2 months, was placed into an induced coma, and survived despite being on the brink of death several times.

A big thank you to Ben Taplin for sharing his story and experiences with us.
