State: New Orleans, LA
Facility:Ochsner Medical Center for Children
Sebastian is an 11-year-old that was admitted to Ochsner Medical Center’s PICU with necrotizing fascitis. He was in unbelievable pain and remained completely positive and sincere to the staff. He is an ideal patient; for example, he stayed calm during all his tests and procedures. Even when he was barely able to speak, he kept his sense of humor and manners. Sebastian coped so well with his hospitalization. He started off in the PICU, had three very big surgeries, inpatient therapy and is not in school yet. He is still experiencing pain, but remaining strong. He deserves to be recognized for all of his hard work and the staff and his family are very proud of him!
