Hero of the Month Girl

Monica is a bright, cheery 15 year old girl who has been unfortunate enough to have to spend quite a bit of time in our hospital over the last several months. About four years ago, she suffered a bout of ulcerative colitis which required having her colon removed. She was then free from problems for about three years. However, over the last year she has suffered nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. This resulted in two surgeries, one of which was getting a new ileostomy. Through it all Monica has been able to keep her spirits up and a smile on her face. That is why she is our Hero!
