“Hunter made all the staff smile”
Hunter has been hospitalized at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital multiple times. During one of his more recent hospitalizations, he had many challenging obstacles to overcome. Dealing with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, Hunted endured five painful surgeries during his month-long stay.
“Each time Hunter went to surgery, he was brave and made all the staff working with him smile,” writes his nominating Child Life Specialist. “Although Hunter had to endure so many surgeries and so much pain while he was in the hospital, he remained an absolute joy to be around and is certainly our hero!
Kids Wish Network is very proud to honor Hunter as a Hero of the Month along with Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital!
After Hunter was honored, he did something even more incredible! Hunter used his award to buy cars for other sick kids in the hospital. Cars were something that made Hunter feel better during his stay and he wanted to make more kids happy!
