Ariel – Hero of the Month

Name: Ariel
Age: 15
State: Tampa, FL
Facility:Shriners Hospitals for Children – Tampa

Hero of the Month Girl

Fifteen-year-old Ariel has adjusted well and maintains a positive attitude despite being away from her friends and family, who are a good three hours away in Jacksonville, FL. She has shown great improvement over the past month with her bravery, determination and kindness toward the staff and other patients. Ariel has scoliosis and has undergone two major surgeries since she has been admitted. Her first surgery left her with pain and difficulty sleeping, but this did not discourage her from making friends with the other patients and being involved with daily activities. Ariel is Shriners’ Tampa HERO because of all she has overcome and the great improvement she has made along with way!
