Facility: University Medical Center of Southern Nevada
Haley is a six-year-old little girl who was admitted on May, 27th 2007. Haley fell from a two-story building resulting m a traumatic paralysis of her legs. Despite this diagnosis, Haley’s spirit has never suffered. From day one Haley has communicated her likes/dislikes to the staff and asking them question after question to become more aware of her medical needs. Her family has been with her every step of the way helping her with her exercises and given her the support to understand her situation. The day after she received her heck/back brace, she asked if she could “make it pretty”. She covered it in stickers and colored the entire brace with bright colors. Each day her spirit becomes brighter and transferable to the staff. That is way is my honor to recommend Haley as June’s Hero of the Month.
