Francesca is a seven year old girl with Klippel-Feil and Sprengels deformity. She recently found out that she needed surgery on her shoulders and was very fearful. She came to visit the hospital before her surgery to lean all about what she would experience when she came back for her surgery. When it was time for her to be admitted to the hospital, she was able to be strong and brave! She made it through her surgery and hospitalization and is on her way to recovery. She is our Hero!
