Kangas Family: Rainbow Stories 2018

December 7, 2018


  • At 28 weeks, Victor was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, where his mom was visiting her sister.
  • He was 2 pounds, 6 ounces, 14 and ¾ inches.
  • Rainbow worked with the Kangas family to get them back to Cleveland via our critical transport team.
  • Victor spent a total of 8 weeks in the hospital: 5 in the NICU and 3 in step down. When he came home in September, he weighed 5 pounds.
  • Cecelia and Hugh also decided to join the world a little early – both spent a number of weeks in the NICU – all three Kangas kids had the same nurses!


  • Victor is now in the fifth grade and is on a gymnastics team, is learning the trumpet and has enough charisma to light up any room he enters.
  • Cecelia is now four years old. She loves preschool, dance, cheerleading and playing with her brothers, especially her “baby” Hugh.
  • Hugh is now three years old and thriving. He is the class clown in his preschool class (and at home) and has had no serious long term issues to date.
