Tiffany Andrade: 2012

16 years old, autoimmune hemolytic anemia and cold agglutin disease

Tiffany was diagnosed at age 11 with hemolytic anemia, for which there is no cure. Tiffany has been receiving chemotherapy at Shannon Medical Center for two years and will continue to do so until a cure is found. Tiffany also has to receive warmed fluids due to the cold agglutin disease. Tiffany has to travel to Cook Children's if she requires a blood transfusion, because she can now only receive an unmatched blood transfusion, which has to be done under the supervision of a hematologist. Tiffany's parents are Christina and James. Tiffany has a younger brother, Jesse James, who is 5 years old.
