Ally Bellamy is the daughter of Stephanie Rider and Bobby Bellamy. Ally Nicole Bellamy was born with a condition called Gastroschisis-(her intestines on the outside of her stomach). Ally also has an immune deficiency which makes it very difficult for her body to fight infections. It seems as though Ally has spent more time in Children’s Hospital than her actual home. She has undergone several major surgeries removing most of her bowel, which now does not work leaving her with intestinal failure for which she needs a stomach, small bowel, & colon transplant. She has already undergone a bone marrow transplant just a few weeks ago as her physicians would not transplant the organs she needs without a strong immune system. She is currently inpatient at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh recovering from the bone marrow transplant anxiously awaiting stem cell growth to make her strong enough to undergo her desperately needed organ transplants.

This sweet girl, Stephanie & the Rider family, and Bobby & the Bellamy family need all the support we as a community can give them. Please join us for a fun-filled day!
