Hero of the Month Boy

Joseph is a 13-year old boy who sustained burn to over 50% of his body. When he was first hospitalized in the burn unit, he received daily dressing changes and intensive physical and occupational therapy, which at time can be very painful. In the months since his injury, Joseph has been admitted on four separate occasions and has undergone three surgeries for skin grafts. He will require many more surgeries throughout his lifetime to maintain normal function. Despite his circumstances, he has remained courageous and determined during each and every hospital visit.
