Meet the Stager family from Troy, Ohio, whose 15-month-old daughter Bailey was saved at Dayton Children’s after she came down with a life-threatening virus.
The virus that Bailey contracted caused a brain abnormality called “acute necrotizing encephalopathy of childhood,” or ANEC for short. There are only seven documented cases of ANEC in the United States, and Bailey is the only survivor.
Bailey’s video showcases how the Stager’s family and friends, her team of doctors and nurses at Dayton Children’s and the entire community rally around the care and recovery of this little girl. See how you as a supporter of Dayton Children’s are also part of “Team Bailey.”
You will notice a lot of different statistic given by doctors in all different parts of the world. As technology and communication improves and medical silos are broken, Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy information is being shared and better statistic are being acquired.
