“Alana was very motivated”
Little Alana just wasn’t getting better. After two weeks of doctor’s appointments and several types of antibiotics, 5-year-old Alana was admitted to Mercy Medical Center. She was diagnosed with dehydration, severe ear and bladder infections, pneumonia and unstable blood sugars as related to her type 1 diabetes.
Alana had to withstand multiple testing procedures including numerous blood draws and needle pokes to discover what was ailing her. She suffered through a lot of pain during her stay.
“Alana was very brave and never complained,” says her nominating nurse from Mercy Medical Center. “She was very motivated to get home so she did what she needed to do to get better; she did great for a 5-year-old.”
Kids Wish Network is excited to showcase Alana as a Hero of the Month and honor her for her bravery!
