- Condition: Beta strep meningitis / Hepatitis C
- Location: St. Paul, Minnesota
This is my daughter Allie – my miracle. When she was 4 weeks old, she contracted bacterial beta strep meningitis. She was in a terminal coma. The doctors told me that she wouldn’t survive, but I refused to take her off of life support. Four days later, she woke up. It was a miracle that not even the doctors could explain. During her treatment, Allie received a life-saving blood transfusion. 14 years later, we discovered that the transfusion also gave her Hepatitis C.
Over the next decade, Allie received a variety of treatments, and we were eventually able to manage her disease with the help of a daily injection.
At age 32, we experienced another life-changing event. Now, Allie has access to a treatment that has cured her Hepatitis C. After all of these years, she’s still my miracle.
