Montwonique – Hero of the Month

Name: Montwonique
Age: 16
State: Urbana, IL
Facility: Carle Foundation Hospital

Hero of the Month girl

Montwonique (or, “Schay” as her friends call her) had a Chari-Malformation of the brain. This involved having a 6”-8” incision around her head, which had to be shaved. This was of course, very traumatic for a teenage girl. As a result, she was hospitalized for three days and has many checkups scheduled in the coming months. Schay has a calm spirit and a great inner strength that makes everyone around her feel very special. She handled her surgery with tremendous courage and dignity with her mom – her “cheerleader” – and friends by her side.
