Christian – Hero of the Month

Name: Christian
Age: 15
State: Brooklyn, NY
Facility: Maimonides Medical Center

Hero of the Month Boy

Christian is a 15-year old who was admitted with intense hip pain only to be later diagnosed with osteomyelitis. Christian was suffering from a very deep and long-lasting infection which eventually became so bad that he required surgery. It has been a long rehabilitation process for Christian, with transfers in and out of the intensive care unit and several painful and invasive procedures like a PIC line. He has been on and off of contact precautions which unfortunately did not allow Christian any access to the “fun stuff” on the Pediatrics floor. Christian has spent a lot of time sleeping and recuperating but is definitely looking forward to going home and returning to school!
