Davin is a real Hero because he has endured seven different surgeries in only 10 years of his life. Each time it was for something new. His latest surgery was for his infected appendix removal. When I heard his story I knew immediately that we had found our new Hero of the Month. He was a little nervous to have his appendix removed, but after a few really good questions he was able to get the information he required to remain calm and prepare himself for his surgery. For remaining brave in the face of multiple surgeries, I have nominated Davin as our Hero of the Month for March 2010.
