Cameron’s Journey to SDR

Meet Cameron. He is 9 years old and has Cerebral Palsy (spastic diplegia).  Cameron was born 2 months premature and as a result was later diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Cameron requires the use of a wheel chair for longer distances and has difficulty performing daily tasks such as walking, dressing, bathing , and transitioning.  He is in constant discomfort due to the spasticity that he suffers in his legs and arms.

Cameron is a bright, kind, active little boy and charms everyone where ever he goes. He deserves an opportunity to live a life with greatly  improved mobility and pain free.

Cameron was recently accepted to receive SDR surgery (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy) with Dr T.S Park at St Louis children hospital in St Louis Missouri. This is great news for Cameron and life changing.
