Lend your voice to the call to help build a new home for the Stollery, for kids tomorrow and today.

Meet Cameron


Cameron’s medical journey started as soon as he entered the world. Born six weeks early, Cameron needed to be resuscitated at birth and spent the next several weeks in the NICU, growing and getting stronger. At just over a year old, Cameron wasn’t meeting his milestones. His doctors at the Stollery discovered Cameron had a tethered spinal cord, similar to spina bifida where his spinal cord was attached to the base of his back. He couldn’t walk or sit up. At 15 months old, Cameron had his first of many surgeries to release his spinal cord. When Cameron turned three, he was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and the doctors believe another diagnosis is still waiting to be found. Cameron has many medical conditions which have led to multiple surgeries and procedures, causing him to spend more than 600 days at the Stollery. Today, Cameron wears leg braces and uses his wheelchair almost every day because he tires quickly. Having spent so much time at our world-class children’s hospital over the years, his parents are grateful to have the Stollery in their backyard.

Without this amazing facility and the wonderful caregivers, our journey wouldn't be what it is today. Simply put, we wouldn't have our children here with us.
