A Survivor

Angelica Hale is a rockstar, not only on the stage but in real life, as well. In 2012, when she was only four years old, Hale developed a fatal medical condition. She became very ill with a bacterial infection in her lungs that soon turned into double pneumonia, and she was fighting for life. Hale was put on ECMO life-support at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Her kidneys were severely damaged and, as a result, she had to undergo hemodialysis and later peritoneal dialysis for over a year. After struggling to survive, and a in need of a kidney transplant, it was discovered that her mother was a match. In September 2013, Eva Hale donated a kidney to her daughter, and the then-six-year-old got a new lease on life.
