“Addison was so brave”
When Addison fell ill with a fever, stomach pains, and couldn’t eat for four days, her parents were rightfully concerned. Once admitted to Mercy Medical Center, Addison was diagnosed with a ruptured appendix and was scheduled for surgery immediately.
A surgery for anyone, let alone a 5-year-old girl, can be quite traumatic, but Addison was brave throughout it all. Her long recovery was hindered by being unable to keep food down and an inability to use pain medication. She even spent the holidays in the hospital.
Despite these struggles, Addison was sweet and compliant to all the staff at Mercy Medical Center and demonstrated bravery continuously.
Kids Wish Network is proud to honor Addison as a Hero of the Month!
