South Carolina doctors deliver heartbreaking news to family of COVID-stricken 13-year-old

When Ariel Griffith, a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina teenager, had trouble catching her breath, she was treated for COVID-19, pneumonia and sepsis.

Doctors soon delivered even more devastating news to Griffith’s family. The eighth grade honours student, who recently made her school basketball team, also has leukemia.

Griffith, 13, who is a student at Ocean Bay Middle School, is now hooked up to a ventilator and feeding tube at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

Her stepfather tested positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 1. Griffith initially tested negative, according to her mother, Lauren Hocin.

That changed a few days later.
