A mother trying to make life a little better for her family started school to become a lab technician at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

While in school, she got pregnant and had a baby.

But her baby, Hailey, was born with major health concerns. That's when the KMOV Surprise Squad was called in.

After Hailey's aunt contacted the Surprise Squad, News 4 This Morning's Laura Hettiger headed to the hospital to try and make life easier for the family.
