Ambassador Gabe Truant’s Story
In his mother’s words (Krista Truant) recaps how it all started with a common sinus infection…. “He was home for a couple days then back to school. The school called that day around lunch and said Gabe was sick and not acting himself. I picked him up at school and brought him home where he had his first seizure. Paramedics came and he seemed okay by then. They asked if we wanted him brought in and we said yes. He had a grand mal seizure en route. Mis and non diagnosed in Windsor he was airlifted by Ornge to London Childrens Hospital, Thank God as they saved his life. He had to have a double craniotomy (both halves of his skull removed) for 2 months to relieve the pressure. Was in an induced coma for 2 weeks and had to learn to speak and walk again. Dr. Ranger and her team at the Children’s Hospital in London saved his life! The funding the Children’s Miracle Network gives to the hospitals for various programs was so instrumental in his recovery and it is not funded by the government! It is funded from you and I. Miraculously he is 100% back to normal!”
