About The Amelia Center

Christian Ward

Brain tumor, hydrocephalus

One day, Christian Ward started to complain of back pain. Then his eyes suddenly became sensitive to light. “He couldn’t walk 10 feet without complaining about his back,” said Christian’s mother, La Tongna Ward Mitchell. “I took him to the pediatrician and the on-call doctor shrugged it off as growing pains. She checked his eyes, but didn’t think anything was wrong.”

Christian's Story

Robin Struble

Epilepsy

It was a shift gone unnoticed by everyone but Robert Struble. His then-12-year-old daughter, Robin, would stare into space and cease to speak. The episodes would end as soon as they began, each one fleeting – over in a flash. “As time went by, it became more noticeable,” said Struble, a single father who booked Robin an appointment with a neurologist to find answers.

Robin's Story


Severe Weather Preparedness

In Alabama, we are no stranger to severe weather, so it is a good idea to have a plan for your family to stay safe. Severe weather can happen any time in any part of the country, so it's a good idea to be prepared ahead of time. Once a storm is approaching, it's often too late to work on a preparedness plan.
