Room 5123

Welcome.

Room 5123 honors those who live lives full of doctor’s appointments and hospital wards. This parallel world runs in tandem to our daily lives, but it is one full of worry, hope, doctor appointments, syringes, pulse ox machines, life, death and everything in between.

Stories

"In the hospitals around us, there is a parallel world. One that runs next to the usual hustle of work, school, life and everything in between. It is a life worth telling about. It is a story that needs to be told. I want to tell these stories."

“I think that its hard to have people understand how hard it is unless they are living that same life or a similar life.”

– Chris, Becca’s Mom

Chris

I don’t feel like our whole life has been hard. I think we have had hard times but as long as Becca was doing well, I think we were reasonably good. And normal. Whatever that means. But I think when things aren’t good it’s really hard. I think that its hard to have people understand how hard it is unless they are living that same life or a similar life. I have found, at this point, that mothers who have reached out to me who have lost their children, they help me. And that has been good. Even through their pain, they have helped me.

Becca was adopted and I know one thing we, would say yes again all over in a heartbeat because of everything and how she has changed me and us and who she was and all that we learned and have become. Because of her. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. I think all the moms I know who are in the middle of this struggle, who won or loss the struggle feel the same way. They would do it again.”
