Ellen – Hero of the Month

Name: Ellen
Age:10

Hero of the Month Girl

As spring is finally coming to the Wasatch front, we have had our very own ray of sunshine in the hospital for the last month. Ellen came to us over a month ago for surgery for her Ricketts and other health issues and ended up requiring additional tests causing her surgery to be put on hold for another month! How did Ellen handle the delay? Like any Hero of the Month would, she has taken it in stride, always maintaining a smile on her face and looks for ways to serve the other patients in the hospital. It is fairly common for our patients with Ricketts to avoid taking their medication because of the adverse side effects, but even in this aspect of her life she is amazing, taking her daily required medication without argument. She is a sweet girl with a big heart and an even bigger smile – another Hero!
