Brody Simpson

Congenital Heart Defect

Brody was perfect in the eyes of his parents but his health was not. The biggest problem was a heart defect that needed immediate attention. That included surgery. Without it, Brody wouldn’t live long. Two days later, Brody was flown from his birthing hospital in Huntsville to Children’s of Alabama.

Brody's Story

Shelby Hazelip 

Atrial Septal Defect

It was the night before final exams week at the University of Alabama in December 2015 when Shelby Hazelip fell ill, experiencing shortness of breath, chest pain and tightness. The then 19-year-old initially wrote the symptoms off, but while taking her exams, the symptoms persisted and worsened as the day went on.

Shelby's Story


Cold or Flu?

The fall and winter months are cold and flu season. Many children develop sore throats, a cough and sometimes a fever. So how can parents determine if that illness is just a cold or the flu? Both the cold and the flu can present some similar symptoms including cough, congestion and a runny nose.

Dr. Lisa Venable, a pediatrician at Midtown Pediatrics, offers these tips, "In general the flu hits a lot harder than a cold does, and a lot quicker," she says. "You can have a high fever, fatigue and body aches and feel very, very tired." Watch video.
