“We’re so proud of Cam’s resilience! He has taken this whole journey in stride. He’s very social and loves being around his peers.”
A Message from Cam’s Family:
At first, Cam was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy due to global developmental delays. When Cam’s mobility started to decline, his specialists requested to have genetic testing done. We then we found the mutation on his genetic report.
KIF1A has taken his abilities to walk and write. His vision has declined also due to optical nerve atrophy, another symptom associated with KIF1A.
We’re so proud of Cam’s resilience! He has taken this whole journey in stride. He’s very social and loves being around his peers. He enjoys cooking/baking, gardening, coloring, doing puzzles and playing games on his tablet.
Why is treatment so important to us? We don’t want Cam or his younger brother, Mason, who also was diagnosed with KIF1A, to lose anymore abilities or skills they’ve worked so hard to obtain.
We hope one day soon there will be treatment for all of our superheroes.
