Corvante was working in a summer job shadow program at KFC when he was burned with hot water by accident. He stated they were having “Water Wars” and someone decided to pour hot water in a bucket with the intention to ice it down before throwing it onto him. Another person took the hot water and, without knowing it was scalding hot, threw it on Corvante.
Corvante is our Hero because of the positive attitude that he choose to have throughout his treatment process. He is a courageous young man; pleasant, cooperative and an easy patient to care for.
