Hero of the Month Boy

Christopher is a 4 year old boy who was recently admitted for acute respiratory failure. He has a tracheostomy and is completley dependant on a ventilator for breathing. His family is from a remote Alaska village and due to the fact that he cannot live outside of a larger city due to his healthcare requirments, he resides in medical foster care. His biological family does keep in close touch, he enjoys hearing them on the phone and spending time with them when they can come to Anchorage. Christopher enjoys Sponge Bob, wrestling with his black labrador dog and his brothers and sisters. He enjoys being a helper, learning how to help out with normal household chores, and even has his own little vaccuum that he likes to clean with. He is a delightful little boy and much a hero to those who know and love him.
