Facility: Tufts NE Medical Center
The Pedi Gl Team would strongly recommend Charles “Chuckie” for HERO of the month for the courage and bravery he has shown over the past year in dealing with his medical problems. He has had to contend not only with expected Gl issues but also multiple unforeseen complications which was no small task for this 9 year old. He has undergone 7 OR procedures/surgeries, 3 hospitalizations and numerous office visits for both foDowup and problems, all the while continuing to attend school, play with friends and raise laying chickens. Chuckle gets the Gl Team vote for HERO of the month.
