  1. When Sara and Brian Fitzgerald’s daughter Kate is diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia at the age if two and she needs certain things from a second person and non of Kate’s family match, Sara and Brian decide to have another baby.

    Anna has been having stuff taken away from her, her whole life. Her umbilical cord blood as soon as she was born; at the age of five she gave donor lymphocytes which involved drawing blood from the crooks of her arms; a month later she gave more lymphocytes; when she was six she donated granulocytes… But this was when she was young; she was young, she didn’t really know what was going on and she knew it was helping her sister.

    But now she’s thirteen and they’re asking her to donate one of her kidneys. Now she’s thirteen she gets to think about these things and she can make her own decisions but her parents don’t think that that’s why Anna is suing her parents for the rights to her own body.
