Epilepsy

Charlie Mae Wilson is a 4-year-old girl who lights up a room when she smiles and giggles. Though she cannot speak, she instinctively hugs when she is held by loved ones. At 3 months old, Charlie was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called SMC1A epilepsy. Less than 100 people in the world have been diagnosed with the disorder.

Type 1 Diabetes

Children’s of Alabama nurse Tanya Nethery knows first-hand the challenges of living with diabetes. After receiving her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes in 1978, Tanya remained a patient at Children’s for 14 years. Tanya learned how to manage her diabetes and has faced many of the same challenges as her patients – from paying extra attention to nutrition at a very young age to frequent visits to the doctor to insulin therapy.
