This is the story of Tru Wende Beare, a remarkably brave girl born 14 weeks premature, who has grown into a beautiful young child. Weighing just one pound at birth, she was the smallest baby the doctors at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, Canada, had ever seen.

Due to her tiny size, Tru had to stay in the hospital for an extended period while the medical staff worked tirelessly to save her life. Her parents remained hopeful and prayed, eager to hold their newborn daughter. After 11 days, her mother was able to hold her, but her father had to wait 54 days.

Tru spent 71 days in an incubator before being moved to a cot, after which her condition began to steadily improve. During her four-month hospital stay, she battled numerous health issues, including necrotizing enterocolitis, two blood clots, chronic lung disease, MRSA, retinopathy, two blood infections (including sepsis), a congenital heart defect, and required seven blood transfusions.

Despite these challenges, Tru’s will to survive and stay close to her parents prevailed. Now four years old and absolutely adorable, it’s hard to believe she was once a one-pound newborn.

Tru is now a big sister and an inspiration to many, embodying the spirit of perseverance. Her story teaches us that no matter how tough life gets, the only option is to never give up.

We wish her a wonderful life filled with success in all her endeavors. She has proven to be unbeatable and we hope she continues with this mindset in the future.
