Cameron Yurik

Hi, my name is Cameron Yurik and I am 13 year old.  I was born with a heart disease and have been through many open heart surgeries since birth at Boston Children’s Hospital.
When I was 7 years old I was also diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) where I am losing my muscles and my ability to walk.  Having a heart disease and DMD my doctors told me is one in a million.   I can still walk a little but can not climb stairs, take walks with my dog or play like other children my age.  My legs are getting really tired and I use my Power Chair to get around most of the time now.

My biggest challenge now is getting in and out of our car and not being able to bring my power chair with me because it does not fit in our car.    My mom and dad are working hard to get me a wheelchair accessible van so I can go places and be able to have my chair to get around safely.

Please help me reach this goal by contributing today!
