Meet Aly: Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

For most kids, after-prom means staying up all night bowling, dancing, watching movies or just hanging out. For 16-year-old Aly Reynolds, after-prom became an extended stay at Akron Children’s Hospital, much of it spent in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, as a mysterious case of hemolytic uremic syndrome shut down her kidneys and led to more than a few scary moments. In this Children’s Channel video podcast, Aly and her mom, Andrea Joliet, share the story behind her hospital stay, highlighting the ups and downs they experienced, as well as the team that helped save her life.
