Home Design the Glickman Design Build Way

It was clear to Russell Glickman from the beginning that his son, Michael, 26, was going to be the master of his own fate—despite facing tremendous odds. Deprived of oxygen before his birth, Michael was delivered at 251/2 weeks and weighed just over 2 pounds. His brain was damaged and his lungs were underdeveloped. Three days after his son was born, Glickman and his wife, Anne, rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit at what is now MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. There, doctors told them that Michael’s oxygen levels were dropping precipitously and that he would likely die— the Glickman’s needed to say goodbye.

What happened next was as life-changing as it was inexplicable… and here’s the full Glickman story.
