Michael was involved in a serious car accident. When he was first admitted to the hospital, it was believed his severely injured arm would need to be amputated. Fortunately, his arm could be saved. Michael underwent a series of tests, procedures, and four surgeries during his nearly one-month hospital stay.
Michael has made amazing progress, but is challenged with limited mobility in his left leg and right arm. Throughout his treatments, Michael has exemplified courage and understanding. He has achieved more and coped better with his situation than anyone expected, and is now on a long road to recovery with more inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. Michael believes that no matter what happens in life, you can’t let it stop you from doing what you want.
Michael’s bravery and perseverance continued to inspire hospital staff. Kids Wish Network is honored to recognize Michael as a Hero of the Month.
