Patient of the Month: Frankie

December 2017

What was supposed to be a fun day for Frankie and his sister with their uncle quickly took an unexpected and tragic turn. Frankie was kicked in the head by a horse at the ranch they were visiting, and he suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was airlifted to the nearest trauma center, and as soon as he was stable, his parents opted to have him transferred via LifeFlight to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Today, he is getting better by the day thanks to the care he received at Nicklaus Children’s.
