Kyle is an 8 year old burn survivor who sustained 65% burn injury in Aug 2009. He has spent the last few months at Shriners Hospitals for Children enduring numerous skin grafts and extensive rehabilitation. During his rehab, Kyle has had to work on relearning many of the daily tasks we all take for granted: walking, getting dressed, brushing his teeth and feeding himself. Throughout all of this, Kyle has been strong and never given up. When asked to do or try something he never said ‘no’, he just did it. That is why we believe Kyle is a true hero!
