Karlie Gill 

Chronic kidney disease

Karlie Gill enjoys playing with friends and preparing for gymnastics meets, but it wasn’t long ago that she faced a different battle – one that required great resiliency and strength. At age 3, Karlie began having stomach pain. Her parents, Jason and Kacey Gill, initially thought it was a stomach bug, but the pain continued to persist.

Karlie's Story

Jaquares Bates 

Prune belly syndrome

Like most 9-year-old boys, Jaquares Bates is all about superheroes. And like the strong characters he so admires, Jaquares has long exhibited a heroic strength all his own.  Jaquares was diagnosed in utero with prune belly syndrome, a rare disorder caused by a host of issues, including problems in the urinary tract.

Jarquares' Story


Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

It's called the "Silent Killer." Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen any time of the year, but people are especially at risk during the winter months.

Ann Slattery is the Director of the Regional Poison Control Center at Children's of Alabama. She says it's estimated that 5,000- 6,000 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning every year and most everyone is at risk. "Any time you have an appliance that uses natural gas, a kerosene heater or if there's a garage attached to the home, or a fireplace you're at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning," she says.
