Follow up for Amelia

Parents: Transplant for disabled girl now a possibility at CHOP | Philadelphia Inquirer | 01/31/2012:

'via Blog this'

Some of you may have read my post a while back about the little girl who was denied a transplant based on her  developmental disability. The doctor they met with felt that she should not have a transplant and therefor would not recommend the transplant to the board. 

What followed was an incredible outcry from the  special needs community. The hastag #TeamAmelia popped up and people began posting. Sunday Stilwell created a petition over at change.org and over 35,000 poeople have signed it.

The hospital has met with the parents and has agreed to look into it further. check out the article. It gives me hope for little Miss Amelia.
