Facility: Texas Scottish Rite
I would like to nominate Alexis Martinez for the Hero of the Month award for the month of September. Alexis is a 9 year old patient with a leg length discrepancy.
Alexis was admitted to TSRHC in June 2007 for an llizarov application. She is a quiet, very polite and pleasant young lady. She quickly got to know the other kids and is very involved with Child Life and our Therapeutic Recreation programs. Her attitude and willingness to try new activities was most notable. She is always ready to test her abilities and try new challenges. Alexis has a very positive attitude and works hard to complete all of her Physical Therapy exercises, and she is quick to help other patients. She always takes an interest in other people.
I am nominating Alexis because of her positive attitude and enthusiasm when taking on new challenges, as well as her willingness to work hard. She is a great role model and encouragement to other patients.
