Facility: Shriners Hospital’s for Children-Cincinnati
Alfred is an amazing 8-year-old who lives in Georgia with his mom, dad and two brothers. The family pulled together to help Alfred recover after a terrible accident left him with severe burns over 76 percent of his body. Although he had tremendous support, his determination and spirit are ultimately what pulled him through. He stayed focused on the future while he had to re-learn to walk and feed himself, and he took the time to get to know the people he met at the hospital and made friends with everyone. It was bittersweet when Alfred finally left the hospital after several months of recovery. We were so thrilled to see him getting better but knew we would miss his jokes, laughter and smile.
