Alia A.

Alia and her sisters Aya and Amani were all born on June 15, 2017. While her sisters were born healthy, Alia has fought a daunting array of conditions, including heart dysfunction that required surgery immediately after birth, a liver tumor, hematoma, blood clots, and a dysfunctional immune system. She has spent her whole life in the hospital. “She is as strong, fun, cute, and joyful as her sisters. I am blessed to have her,” says her mother. “We are strong women—Alia, Aya, and my girls.”
