Omar's Story

HI my name is andrea and this story is not about me but my cousin omar. I am telling this story because he is no longer here with us. Omar was only 11 years old when he passed away. He was very ill, he had a virus in his blood stream and not enough white blood cells to fight it off. and he was admitted to the Pediatric ICU. They told us his heart stopped and that he could die at any moment. We all knew he was not going to survive and on july 7th 2014 he died. I just wanted to thank all the doctors that did their very best to keep him alive and all the nurses who took care of him. Thank you and may god bless each and every one of you. OMAR OLMOS ZARAGOZA 2002-2014
