“Jermaine’s positive attitude inspired everyone”
Hero of the Month Jermaine suffers from scoliosis, curvature of the spine, and needed spinal surgery at Shriners Hospitals for Children- Greenville. The 15-year-old underwent his first spinal fusion surgery, but soon lost sensation in his legs. He then needed another surgery just a few days later. Jermaine bravely underwent two major surgeries in one short week.
Nominated by his doctor for being “very thankful, kind, and a kid that never complained”, Jermaine’s positive spirit inspired his parents, the staff, and his doctor to have a great attitude regardless of their situation. His doctor was even overheard telling Jermaine that his great attitude made him want to be a better person.
Jermaine’s attitude has certainly inspired Kids Wish Network too, and we’re proud to honor him as a Hero of the Month!
