Age: 12
State: Manhasset, NY
Facility: Schneider Children’s Hospital at North Shore University Hospital

Hero of the Month Girl

Alaina is a twelve year old girl diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. She is well known to Schneider Children’s at North Shore and during this admission had her thirteenth surgery. Alaina has grown up through the years and has been through several invasive procedures. This time we are very proud of her because she got through a difficult procedure while she was awake. She sang songs and talked to Child Life and the Doctors and showed herself how strong she can be. She kept saying my Mom is going to be so proud of me! Alaina is very creative and enjoys working on the computer and making different arts and crafts activities. We believe Alaina is our Hero of the Month for April due to her persistence to stay motivated and believe in herself.
