David – Hero of the Month

Name: David
Age: 16
State: Ohio
Facility: Shriners Hospitals for Children Cincinnati

Hero of the Month

David is truly a HERO as he sustained his burn injury because he went back into his house to rescue his mother and younger sister from a house fire. David was burned on 95% of his body. The doctors gave his family little hope of survival. David defied the odds and after 5 months in the ICU and 1 month of relearning daily activities he was discharged home. David was not only an inspiration to staff but also to the children on the unit. He is able to encourage them to work hard to meet their goals for discharge and always has an uplifting word. Although David does not feel that he deserves any recognition because he said that is what brothers and sons do we at Shriner’s Hospital for Children-Cincinnati disagree and hope that you reward him for his HEROISM.
