2016 Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Vincent

rsz_levine_childrens_hospital_guy_vincent_photo2.jpgVincent has been in and out of the hospital since birth, but his recurring visits to Levine Children’s Hospital do not define him. Diagnosed at age 12 with prune belly syndrome and chronic renal failure, Vincent could have easily given up. Instead, he persevered through numerous surgeries and procedures as well as seven years of dialysis treatment. When reflecting on his experience at Levine Children’s, Vincent sees the staff as part of his family, making his battle with renal failure a bit more bearable.
