Our friend's, (Dan & Adrienne Green) 3 year old daughter, Phoebe, has been diagnosed with a rare and life-threatening genetic blood disorder.  Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS) is an inherited disorder of the immune system.  In ALPS, unusually high numbers of white blood cells called lymphocytes accumulate in the lymph nodes, liver, and spleen, which leads to gross enlargement of these organs. ALPS can cause numerous autoimmune problems such as anemia (low count of red blood cells), thrombocytopenia (low count of platelets), and neutropenia (low count of neutrophils, the most common type of white blood cell in humans). Her medical bills are skyrocketing, and it's just the beginning. Her parents will need to travel the United States for specialists at their own expense.  Because ALPS is so rare, even though it is life threatening, none of the costs are covered by insurance.  Please share this page and forward it to whomever you can. Together, voice by voice, Phoebe's roar is getting louder!
