CAMDENRetrun to 22q Stories
You are here
Camden, 4-month-old son of Michael and Rachael of central IL, was born with a rare chromosome defect known as 22q11 or DiGeorge Syndrome like many others here. Camden spent the first 6 weeks of his life at the Children’s Hospital at OSF in Peoria to determine the severity of his condition which includes a hole in his heart; also, he is unable to be fed by mouth because he aspirates so a feeding tube was surgically inserted in his stomach through which he gets his formula. Camden will undergo another surgery in October to correct his hypospadias. He is a happy little guy that never complains much and smiles a lot. He has the support of a great loving family and group of friends.
