“He is sweet natured and always has a smile even when he is in pain”
Albert was admitted into the emergency room of Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital with extreme stomach pain. After testing, he was diagnosed with appendicitis which causes swelling and infection of the appendix, which can lead to a rupture. Albert had to have immediate surgery after his diagnosis.
Despite the immense pain and uncertainty, Albert had a great attitude throughout his entire hospitalization. He was always kind to hospital staff and was very brave when managing his pain.
It is with great pride that we honor Albert’s bravery and determination by acknowledging him as Kids Wish Network’s and Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital’s Hero of the Month. Congratulations Albert!
