Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, July 2014
For any adult, staying in a hospital for over a week can decrease our patience and cooperation; but not for 10-year-old Anthony, who was recently honored as Hero of the Month by Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.
Anthony was admitted to the facility due to a severe flair up of his asthma symptoms. During his week-long stay, 10-year-old Anthony was a source of comfort and support for many of the younger patients. He was very polite when working with the hospital staff and extremely patient when engaging with younger patients. Anthony was courageous during his treatments and very cooperative when taking his multiple medications. Anthony is a strong example of a great young man, and a true HERO.
