For infant with rare condition, blue lights keep her alive.

Diagnosed with a rare disorder, Nina Lowry's parents took her to Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in Norfolk so she could lie under special lights that broke down a toxin called bilirubin in her bloodstream. After Nina's fifth hospital visit to lie under phototherapy lights, Candace Dunleavy, a Care Connection coordinator at CHKD, began a search for the blue lights that would keep Nina alive.
