Episode 142: At 8, she’s endured more than most and kept a positive attitude along the way
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A little Hawaii girl is proving to be a big inspiration.
Eight-year-old Haumea Friel was born with a rare birth defect that causes one leg to be shorter than the other.
She’s endured 10 surgeries at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, including one that lasted 16 hours. Despite the challenges and learning how to walk again with a prosthetic leg, Haumea has maintained a positive attitude.
She was named Hawaii’s first ever National Children’s Miracle Network champion earlier this year.
