A Metro East baby was recently given the gift of life thanks to the doctors at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

His family lives in Mascoutah, but Children’s Hospital is seemingly the only place 9-month-old Ben Hay has ever known.

“We took him home for eight days over Christmas,” said mother Jacqueline Hay.
