Boy Overcomes a Crushed Skull, Broken Limbs, Spinal Damage and a Weeklong Coma

Source: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Bryce had come to know the halls of Children’s Specialized Hospital after a year-plus treatment for a developmental disorder. His family couldn’t imagine how much they’d rely on the hospital until November 25, 2011, when a reckless SUV driver struck Bryce and dragged him 60 feet.

Bryce’s injuries were severe. A crushed skull, broken limbs, spinal damage and a weeklong coma left him fighting for his life. After several surgeries, Bryce returned to his member hospital-this time as a patient in their cognitive rehabilitation program. Working five days each week, Bryce eventually relearned all of his basic skills.

A year ago, Bryce couldn’t recognize letters, numbers or hold a pencil. Now, he’s doing long division and writing in cursive. He continues to fight everyday with a winning smile. Bryce’s mom is thankful he was able to “find his voice” again and remarks: “he just continues to fight harder and always with a big, captivating smile and bright outlook. He is my own superhero!”

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals helped fund various medical devices used during Bryce’s recovery.
