Richlyn Carter

Lymphatic malformations

After arriving at a Huntsville hospital, doctors quickly knew it was an intestinal problem causing a blockage, but nothing more. Richlyn was put in the critical care unit and transported to Children’s of Alabama, where it was discovered Richlyn had lymphatic malformations.

Richlyn's Story

Matthew Myers

Brain tumor

Eighteen-year-old Matthew Myers is a rising sophomore at Samford University in Birmingham majoring in pre-pharmacy. Why pre-pharmacy? He answers without hesitation. “My intention is to complete my residency in pediatric oncology and work at Children’s downtown,” he said. “To be able to do that would be a life-fulfilling dream.” 

Matthew's Story


E-Cigs and Vaping

E-cigarettes or electronic cigarettes are being marketed as a safe alternative to smoking, but health officials say they are not safe. Dr. Susan Walley is a pediatrician at Children's of Alabama. She's concerned about the increase in the use of e-cigarettes and vaping. "As a pediatrician there are two major issues with electronic cigarettes or vaping devices. One is that these are not safe products and the second is that they contain nicotine which is a tobacco product." She believes many youth and adults don't realize e-cigarettes contain nicotine, an addictive drug that affects the brain, nervous system and heart. Watch video.
