Mychaela Dances Again, Thanks to her Mother's Advocacy

Person's Name: 
Mychaela Lovelace

My name is Mychaela Lovelace. I had been a healthy five-year-old child until one day, when I came home, my mother noticed red dots and bruises on my body. Because she worked in the medical field, she was very concerned. She took me to the doctor, but my pediatrician wasn’t on in the office that day. The doctor I didn’t know said that I was just playing too hard and the dots and bruises were just a rash.

Community Rallied around Braeden's Family as he Fought Aplastic Anemia --- Now Family "Pays it Forward"

Person's Name: 
Braeden Hahn

“Hey, Braeden, we need to go.”   
Little did 12-year-old Braden understand that he was headed towards hospital admission.

Earlier that day, Braden nearly passed out on the basketball court. He was a happy, athletic child, who excelled at several sports.  His mom, Becki, took him for blood work.

Later, Braeden’s parents heard from the doctor’s office: take him to the Emergency Department now.  That’s when Braeden’s dad came to pick him up from his friend’s house, where he’d been playing normally.
