Roman's Story: A LIFE-threatening bone infection, the will to survive, and the faith of a commUNITY

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

In the summer of 2017, Roman Innocent was a healthy, active 10-year-old boy until an infection, from a cut on his leg, left him fighting for his LIFE.

Roman fell and scraped his legs while playing pick-up soccer with his friends. This relatively normal incident quickly turned south when the cuts turned into a raging infection, landing Roman in the hospital. He stayed there from June to November of 2017, fighting sepsis, fevers, and severe anemia.
