Meet Allie

When Allie was born, she weighed 2 pounds 2 ounces. At 16 days old, Allie was diagnosed with a life-threatening infection that required her to be transferred to another hospital where surgeons removed two-thirds of her small intestine. After researching children’s hospitals, especially pediatric gastrointestinal specialists who specialized in short bowel syndrome, Allie’s parents decided to move to Richmond and began treatment at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR).

These days, Allie has graduated from therapy and is attending school whenever she can.
