Meet Alison: 2017 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero

Alison’s life is an example of the transformative power of children’s hospitals. As a nine-year-old, Alison was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) and Crohn’s disease. She battled these two conditions for ten years before receiving a liver transplant at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH).

Without YNHCH “I would not have gotten the care that I needed or access to the specialists that were needed to care for me,” says Alison.
