Cameron Moskowitz was born prematurely at 26 weeks. Three days later, his parents were told that he would never walk, talk or eat on his own due to a brain bleed. This led them to seek care at Gillette Children’s, where Cameron was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 14 weeks old. Now 10 years old, Cameron has had 12 surgeries at Gillette to increase his mobility. He is walking, talking, running, and even making guest appearances on the local news! Next summer, he will undergo SEMLS – Single-event multilevel surgery-to adjust his femurs, lower his kneecaps and place pins in his toes with a goal of improving his stamina and stability.
“The one thing that sticks out most in my mind about Gillette is that it’s like a family. Everyone works together to take care of kids needs at a time when it’s tough for families. I don’t know where we could go to get Cameron the care he needs other than Gillette.” – Stacy Moskowitz, Cameron’s mom
