Anastacia Gencarelli’s intuition told her that it was time to go to hospital. After all, her daughter – Mia – had not been herself for the past two weeks. And even though the worried mother had taken the poor child to see her doctor on two separate occasions, the little girl’s health was still not showing signs of improving. So Gencarelli duly rushed Mia to the ER – and the moment that the medical staff laid eyes on the toddler, a half-dozen doctors and nurses were suddenly fighting to save her life.

The medical team had trouble getting to the root of what was wrong with Mia, though. When they eventually did discover the cause for all the trouble, it came as something of a shock to the little girl’s no doubt distraught mother. In fact, Gencarelli later claimed on Facebook that “90 percent” of parents would never have heard of this ailment before.
