Elmi was admitted to the hospital for thrombosis of the right internal and external jugular vein, which are blood clots in the blood vessels of the neck. He was in the hospital for three weeks and faced every day with a smile. Elmi wants to be an Orthopedic Surgeon when he grows up and loves playing the game Uno. He also enjoys playing tricks on his nurses. When Elmi was able to go home, he gave hugs to all of his caregivers and thanked everyone. We are very excited to nominate Elmi as he has truly earned this honor.
