Meah and Carson Simpson

Sickle cell disease

Meah and Carson Simpson bicker as siblings, but they’re each other’s cheerleader and protector through thick and thin. Meah, born in 2005 with sickle cell disease, is a gentle soul with a fighter’s spirit. At age 6 months, she developed pneumonia, which led to the first of many bouts of acute chest syndrome, a lung-related complication of sickle cell disease.

Meah and Carson's Story

Mary Kathryn Lawrence 

Neurofibromatosis

On the surface, Huntsville native Mary Kathryn Lawrence is like any other teen. She enjoys social events, and in high school, she was a Diamond Doll for the baseball team, a member of the swim team and even worked as a lifeguard. Now, like other 19 year olds, she’s learning how to navigate college life. Mary Kathryn also has another focus – living with neurofibromatosis (NF). 

Mary Kathryn's 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.
