Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has canceled campaign events in Florida to be with his hospitalized three-year-old daughter Bella.

She was admitted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia late Saturday.

Isabella Maria Santorum suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Trisomy 18.

Individuals afflicted with Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards syndrome, have an extra copy of chromosome 18, which kills most children during their first year of life.

Survivors (like Bella) endure extremely serious medical and developmental problems.

According to reports, she was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia.

“Rick intends to return to Florida and resume the campaign schedule as soon as is possible,” said his spokesperson.

Santorum is battling Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul for the Republican nomination.
