Six-year-old Brazyl Ward was trick-or-treating when she was hit by a speeding car on Halloween night 2013. As a result, Brazyl was rushed to Las Vegas University Medical Center where she underwent emergency brain surgery, suffered a broken femur and was put into a medically induced come for weeks before she opened her eyes. Two months later, Brazyl was transferred to Las Vegas’ CareMeridian 4kids.
Initially non-verbal and non-ambulatory, with aggressive pediatric neuro-rehabilitation, extraordinary nursing care, along with demonstrated compassion and commitment from CareMeridian nursing staff and specialists, Brazyl was able to return home in March to her loving parents. She will celebrate her 7th birthday next month at home with her family, who considers her recovery a miracle.
