In the middle of the night, Kameron was admitted to Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital. He had a periapical abscess, and bravely faced the unfamiliarity of the emergency room and all the unknowns of his procedure. It was a difficult time for this shy and sweet 4-year-old, and the support of hospital staff and his family helped him cope. When Kameron was discharged, he gave the staff a picture that he drew to show his appreciation for their care.
Kids Wish Network rewarded this Hero of the Month with recognition and gifts. “When Kameron received his Hero package, his face lit up and he was immediately excited for being a winner,” said his mom Shanika. He later had fun shopping with his gift card for dinosaur Discovery Toys, science games/toys, and an Osmo Genius Kit. “He also LOVES his teddy bear (Hug-O) and t-shirt… and that they have matching shirts,” said his mom. “We truly appreciate his nomination and win.”
Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital nominated Kameron for his bravery, and Kids Wish Network is proud to honor him as a Hero of the Month.
