Alex came to the hospital following an accident where he was hit by a car and suffered extensive pelvic injuries, which have required numerous surgeries and procedures. In addition, he has also undergone a great deal of physical therapy and will continue to do so. Alex has shown a great deal of resilience during his hospitalization and continues to demonstrate this on a daily basis. He asks many questions about his condition and treatment and once something is explained to him, he will often respond by saying, “OK – let’s get this done!” Alex has worked very hard to cope with his circumstances and is a great HERO candidate.
