Benjamin – Hero of the Month

Name: Benjamin
Age: 4
State: Wichita, KS
Facility: Wesley Medical Center

Hero of the Month Boy

Benjamin came to Wesley Medical Center following an alcohol-related auto accident and was unable to feel and use his legs. Throughout the multiple tests and events that occurred the night he was admitted, the four-year old remained calm and brave, despite the fact that he was alone. (His family was traveling in from out of town and didn’t arrive until much later.) Benjamin underwent surgery and a variety of different procedures. Throughout his hospitalization, he continued to push himself during physical therapy sessions to help him gain as much mobility as possible. His playful attitude brought a smile to the staff, patients and other families. Everyone in the PICU and Pediatrics Unit got to know Benjamin, observing him as he zoomed through the hallways on hi arm-powered bike with the his nurses and physical therapists running behind him!
