Harlie is the infant daughter of Chad and Jill Pehlke and the sister of Brittney, Kortney, Donna, Megan and Connor.
Harlie was born Aug. 27, 2010, with a rare disorder known as Central Hypoventilation disorder in which the body forgets to breathe and Hirschprungs disease in which the large intestines do not have nerve cells. Both of these diseases do come with a lifetime of health related issues and surgeries. Harlie has been at Ministry St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield since the end of August.
