Hero of the Month Girl

Kapiolan’i Medical Center for Women and Children is nominating Lissette to September 2007’s Hero of the Month. Lissette is a 12 year old female who overcame numerous pneumothorax-related complications, surgery, chest tube placements and removals as well as physical therapy sessions during her month and a half hospitalization. With the help and support of her family, Lissette endured through many challenges towards her road to recovery yet greeted all her medical staff with friendliness and politeness. Lissette showed persistence and fortitude through a long hospitalization away from home to eventually recover. It is with great pleasure that we nominate Lissette.
