Meet Michael: Our Kid of the Month for January!
Michael is a resilient young man who has experienced a lot of new and unexpected challenges while he was admitted to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital for an extended time.
He is soft spoken among staff, but Michael has made friends with other patients because of his outgoing and selfless personality.
With the help of the CHF, Michael went shopping in the gift shop and bought something for his mom. We reminded him that he deserves to be acknowledged as well for handling these hospitalizations with such understanding, and he picked out a few small items for himself, too. The medical team and his mother were glad he had some fun!
Each month, a child life specialist at Le Bonheur picks out a child for us. We’re truly blessed to have so many special fighters in our lives.
