Rick – Hero of the Month

Name: Rick
Age: 17
State: Elmhurst, NY
Facility: Elmhurst Hospital Center

Hero of the Month Boy

Rick was admitted to the PICU for recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax and had to have a chest tube inserted. It was determined through CT that Rick needed surgery to prevent future pneumothorax so he underwent video-assisted thorascopic sugery. His bravery and respectful demeanor are amazing in the face of such a painful condition. Although he is in visible pain, Rick is always polite and soft spoken. He spends his time apply for college and catching up on school work. Through it all, he remains a true Hero.
