Bella Thomson, 10-year-old daughter of Kyla Thomson, was diagnosed with three rare conditions at an early age: a form of dwarfism, Hirschsprung’s Disease, and SCID (Severe combined immunodeficiency). Kyla Thomson is from Swift Current, Saskatchewan Canada. She has been a medical mom to her daughter Bella for almost 10 years. With over 6.6 million followers on TikTok, Kyla has been sharing Bella’s journey with these three conditions, hoping to shed light on her experience of being a medical mom and to spread awareness of Bella’s rare conditions. Kyla Thomson sat down with CDHF to talk more about her daughter’s journey.

Hirschsprung’s Disease is a rare condition where some nerve cells are missing in the large intestine, making stool unable to pass through the body. In Bella’s case, her Hirschsprung’s disease impacted her entire colon.
