Maliyah is a healthy kid who only been in the hospital for an outpatient surgery. This was her first overnight stay. While she was on her bike in the driveway, which was close to the road, her front tire was clipped by a car driving by. She suffered many fractures from the accident, some were even compound. This did not stop her from being pleasant. She never complained and didn’t cry through her recovery. Her courage is an inspiration to many and it is because of that that she is our hero!
