“Daniel was strong and supportive”
After suffering severe stomach pains, Daniel was admitted to White Memorial Medical Center for treatment of appendicitis. This was the first hospital stay for 8-year-old Daniel, but he was open to asking questions and listened to all his nurses and staff. He willingly shared his experience and also listened to the advice given to help him develop and foster better coping skills.
Daniel took an active role in his health care plan; walking, rest, walking, rest, and executed them with perfection. He even participated in another Hero of the Month celebration by supporting other children just like him.
His strength and supportive attitude make him a Hero in all our eyes!
