At one point, he was diagnosed with DeNovo Autoimmune Hepatitis.
Now 19 years old, Haleem is studying at Benedictine University in Lisle, and he wants to help others who face similar health issues. Haleem and his family started the non-for-profit Miracles Made Thru Research organization, which helps fund research to find a cure for DeNovo Autoimmune Hepatitis.
Ibrahim and Yasmeen Haleem, who are the president and vice president of the Miracles Made Thru Research organization, joined us in our ABC7 studio to talk about the event.
