Former PCCSF Patient Survives Flu and Graduates On Time

It’s graduation season and we’re so happy to share that Jenny Spell, a former Pediatric Critical Care of South Florida patient, was able to walk down the graduation stage with the rest of her classmates from The King’s Academy.

Jenny’s road to graduation wasn’t an easy one. Jenny had to be airlifted to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital where PCCSF’s Dr. Gerald Lavandosky diagnosed her with the flu.

Jenny went on to spend 241 days under the care of the PCCSF team, during which she took classes online to not fall behind.

On May 30, 2017, Jenny joined classmates, family and friends for her graduation ceremony and is now preparing to head off to the University of Florida to study pre-pharmacy. She aspires to become an ICU pharmacist.

We’re so proud of Jenny, and wish her the best of luck!
