Meet Belle

Belle was almost 2 years old when she was diagnosed with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), a serious autoimmune disorder that causes blood clots to form in the kidneys. During flare-ups, the clots can restrict blood flow, even causing seizures and kidney failure. Belle was treated with a new aHUS drug and spent 30 days in the hospital recovering.

Today, she comes to Children’s Colorado every three weeks for infusion treatments, and she hasn’t had a major flare-up in 2+ years.
