2016 Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Gabe
One day Gabe was perfectly healthy, and the next he was lying in a hospital bed in terrible pain. Gabe was suffering from a serious infection that developed after his appendix ruptured. What Gabe’s parents thought was the stomach bug, turned into a diagnosis far more scary and complex than they could have imagined. Gabe’s ruptured appendix triggered a multitude of health complications, including digestive paralysis and formation of a large abscess.
