Meet Trent

Trent loves basketball, especially the Golden State Warriors. He can throw a 3-pointer from any part of his hospital room and make it.

For two years, Trent was having high fevers without any other symptoms. The pediatricians in his hometown would diagnose him with pneumonia, order antibiotics and send him on his way. When his parents found Dr. Johnathan Finder, he began to run additional tests that other physicians never did. They were soon admitted to UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where Trent had many tests, including a bronchoscopy.
