BRAWLEY -- When Brawley resident Sonya Casados woke up to find her 13-year-old daughter, Isabella, in bed completely pale and shivering intensely, she instantly knew something was very wrong.

“She had no color. Her lips were nude, and her nostrils were blue,” Casados recalled of the incident that took place early December. “I thought, ‘What the heck is happening to her?’ I rushed her to the hospital.”
