MY BIG SISTER BY JAKE BEAUDOIN

Jake, can you tell us a bit about your sister Olivia?

My sister has a shunt. She is afraid of needles. She hates oranges. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday she had to go to the hospital. I was sad because I miss her. Sometimes they hurt her in the hospital. She is brave sometimes. She is so big when she is brave. I hate it when she is in the hospital. I miss my mom and dad. They are sad sometimes. I stay with my iniina (god mother-nanny). I want the doctors to make her better. I also want ice cream. I’m always waiting for them to get home. I love my sister.

*Jake’s big sister has undergone 31 brain and spinal surgeries. She is 10 years old.
