BURLINGTON, N.C. (WTVD) -- A family praying for a baby welcomed a miracle at 2:22 a.m. on "twos-day", February 22, 2022 (2/22/22).

According to a Facebook post by Alamance Regional Medical Center, baby Judah Grace Spear's mom survived Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer. The treatments she underwent made pregnancy unlikely, but not impossible.
