Hero of the Month Boy

Christopher, age 10, was diagnosed with a recent onset of diabetes. His personality and life experiences truly exemplify those of a HERO. He recently lost his mother to cancer, and after talking to him, one can hear the strength and wisdom in his voice, Christopher is open to learning about his new medical condition and speaks with an understanding an intelligence that anyone can recognize. He currently lives with his grandfather and both have demonstrated patience and vigor throughout the diagnosis and treatment of his juvenile diabetes. Christopher even established his own coping mechanisms when dealing with needles and hopes that by this time next year, he will be able to administer the shots on his own.
