The hospital said Brandon was born 28 years ago in its NICU; at just 29 weeks old. The hospital said Vilma recognized Brandon’s as he was making his rounds in the hospital.

“Meeting Vilma was a surreal experience,” Brandon told Standford Children’s. “When Vilma recognized my name, it truly sunk in that I was one of these babies. .
