Eduardo is known for his energy and enthusiasm on the soccer field and basketball court. He loves sports, and making other people smile. Despite a chronic GI illness, he is a happy kid with a positive attitude and inner strength greater than his 12 years.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 10, Eduardo visits Children’s every two weeks. He spends several hours with the team in the Infusion Center receiving medication through an IV. His GI doctor, Dr. Pablo Palomo, and care team say he’s a star – and they’re always here to cheer him on.
