Heinz names Kids Wish Hero

Nicholas Vaughan of Shavertown was named the Kids Wish Hero of the Month at John Heinz Rehab for his hard work and positive attitude despite challenges. Born with a short left femur, Vaughan wore a high shoe lift as a toddler and has undergone years of therapy. He has had extensive surgery so that his left foot could serve as a ‘knee’ in his prosthesis and faces additional surgery in the future. First row, from left, are Hallie Vaughan and her brother Nicholas Vaughan. Second row: parents Andy and Nadine Vaughan, and Kirsten Sensbach, physical therapist, John Heinz Institute.
