Hailey suffers from a rare congenital disease called Ateriovenous Malformation (AVM). AVMs are clusters of improperly formed blood vessels that create areas of high pressure. Hailey’s AVM is located on her brain. It ruptured in the Summer of 2013, causing a stroke. She underwent two successful craniotomies, removing the active AVM from her brain. Hailey will continue her care and monitoring at Children’s Hospital throughout her childhood.
