GWMS welcomes John O’Leary on Thursday, November 19th! At the age of nine, John was burned on 100% of his body. No one expected him to survive the first night. But he did. He then survived months in a hospital bed, dozens of surgeries, and years of therapy. Before his 10th birthday, he lost all of his fingers to amputation.
That wasn’t the end. John’s journey was just beginning. And on the 19th, students at GWMS will get to hear his story.
The community is invited to hear John speak as well. He will be at the Loras College Ballroom at 6:30 p.m. on November 19th. This is a free event.
