Adrian “Chanze” Hails

Chronic Lung Disease

Camellia Bass experienced early complications with the pregnancy of her son, Adrian “Chanze.” She began bleeding at 13 weeks and her obstetrician gave her bed rest orders. She was monitored around the clock in a Montgomery hospital for the next six weeks and later transferred to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Women & Infants Center after her water broke at 19 weeks.

Logan McCool

Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus, Scoliosis, Chiari Malformation II, Bilateral Clubfoot

Candice McCool and husband James knew that her pregnancy with daughter Logan was considered high risk, but they weren’t expecting an ultrasound at week 17 to reveal a problem, much less a serious diagnosis. During the anatomy scan, her doctor noticed that Logan’s head was a little abnormally shaped. Further tests revealed it was spina bifida.
