Brazyl Ward was tragically struck by a hit-and-run driver. Brazyl’s chances of surviving her injuries were slim. Thanks to the specialized care she received at Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC, she is back on her little feet, with a smile on her face and a song in her heart! Nothing could stop Eddie from enjoying life not even anear-fatal flesh-eating bacteria. Eddie’s courage, determination and the care he could only receive at Nevadas only Burn Care Center, gave him a chance to live. Ron had been riding near his northern Arizona home when he was clipped from behind by a drowsy driver. The impact sent him flying 35 feet, shattering his pelvis. He was brought over 150 miles to UMC, where the trauma team, against huge odds, ensured he could walk—even ride—again. Vladimir leaned too close to the candle and his pajamas became an inferno. The burns that dominated his neck and chest were able to be treated at UMC by pediatric burn specialists. Andy Linn fell asleep at the wheel and drove head-first into a fence post. This could have been an un-survivable injury, yet, Andrew lived to share his story because of UMC.
