Kosair Children’s Hospital
In May 2014, Jenna and her family were involved in a serious auto accident that put Jenna in the hospital for 13 days. The 11-year-old suffered a broken spine and many internal injuries. During her first stay at Kosair Children’s Hospital, Jenna required a spinal fusion surgery and colostomy plus many other procedures. She was readmitted to the facility in late July for another invasive procedure but has remained brave throughout her struggles.
During the accident, Jenna put aside her pain and helped police and EMT teams while she was still trapped in the car. She has fought through all her injuries with strength and determination.
We’re proud to call Jenna a Hero of the Month!
