“Haley pushed passed all the pain”
The day before Thanksgiving, Hero of the Month Haley was involved in a car accident. The 14-year-old suffered serious injuries and needed immediate medical treatment. From the day of her admission to after New Year’s, Haley spent long days in Kosair Children’s Hospital.
The brave teen suffered through a lot of pain and multiple procedures. She had surgery for a blood clot in her brain, one to repair a hole in her intestines, and one to fix broken vertebrae in her back that included inserting metal rods. Haley also needed a feeding tube and drainage tubes.
Described as a funny, sweet and shy young girl, Haley won the hearts of everyone at Kosair. Haley continued to demonstrate bravery during her recovery process and push past the pain to regain all the skills she lost.
Kids Wish Network is honored to recognize Haley as a Hero of the Month!
