Hero of the Month Natalia has spent a large portion of her life in the hospital. The 10-year-old has a very complex medical history due to shaken baby syndrome, a seizure disorder and a small bowel obstruction. Natalia is also developmentally delayed, but radiates positivity.
“We believe Natalia is a Hero for continuing to be compliant and pleasant toward all hospital staff and her family during all of her hospitalizations,” explains the Hero of the Month Coordinator at Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children. “Natalia is a patient that nurses enjoy being with.”
We’re excited to honor Natalia for continuing to fight against her many medical struggles!
