Jozie Woodfin

Burn injury

His father, William D. Woodfin, III, won’t soon forget that day as Jozie was airlifted within an hour from his local hospital in Alabama’s Black Belt to Children’s of Alabama, where Jozie remained in intensive care for three weeks before being transferred to Children’s Burn Center.

Jozie's Story

Gracie Holland

Crouzon syndrome with acanthosis nigricans

Chandra and John Holland of Athens will never forget that day in March when doctors told them their youngest daughter had been born with Crouzon syndrome with acanthosis nigricans (CAN)—a very rare genetic condition occurring in just one per million births. She also was diagnosed with hydrocephalus and Chiari malformation.

Gracie's Story


Croup

Croup can be a scary situation for a child and their parents. The symptoms usually occur at night. A child may awaken with a funny sounding cough and labored breathing. Peily Soong, M.D., a pediatrician at Pediatrics East, said croup is quite common in children. "It's a very common illness," Soong said. "It's an illness that's caused by a virus, the most common virus is one that's called parainfluenza, but other viruses can cause it like the common cold or flu."

The symptoms of croup are relatively unmistakable. They include a distinct cough that is described as sounding like a seal's bark. It's often worse at nighttime. Other symptoms that may accompany croup include cold-like symptoms such as a fever and runny nose, as well as a raspy voice. Watch video.
