Meet Tarissa

Hometown: Hilliard, Ohio
Age: 9 1/2
Diagnosis: Short Bowel Syndrome & Bilateral Hearing Loss (Auditory Neuropathy)

Tarissa, who was born at 32 weeks, has been a patient of Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Dr. Jane Baliant since she was just hours old.  Upon birth, Tarissa’s doctors discovered that her intestines were failing – necessitating a quick transfer to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.  Since then, she has come back to Nationwide Children’s every 3 months for check-ups in Gastroenterology.

This past August, Tarissa had another surgery to remove 3 more inches of her intestinal tract. In addition, Tarissa has been a patient in the Nationwide Children’s Hearing Clinic since she was 3 ½ years old. Tarissa’s mom, a foster parent who came into her life at one month old, is also a recent employee of Nationwide Children’s and is thrilled to work at the Hospital that saved her now adopted daughter.
