A LITTLE CHAMPION WITH A BIG PERSONALITY
PictUre it. Buffalo, NY. 2014.
Born September 8, 2014, at Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, Cameron William Hill was born at just 25 weeks gestational age, weighing only 1lb, 9oz at birth. He was a very special gift to us. An active baby, even in the womb, and very alert, he was dubbed “feisty”, “tough” and “Superman” by his Nurses, Doctors, and Practitioners, family, friends and onlookers. Cameron would unfortunately see many complications of preterm birth. These would include chronic lung disease, Patent Ductus Arteriosus, Retinopathy of Prematurity, MRSA, Chylothorax, Pulmonary Hypertension and constant operations and procedures.
After 161 days of fighting a good fight, Cameron passed away peacefully, with his parents at his bedside, on Feb. 15. Though his days were short in number, he leaves a remembrance of toughness, resilience and purposefulness, his story inspiring others to believe and to fight on.
