“Kaleb’s Kamper” 💙
We had the absolute pleasure of handing the keys over to Kaleb for their new family camper! Couldn’t have done this without the generosity + efforts of Pik-A-Dilly RV Centre
Kaleb is a 11 vear old boy, Who was diagnosed in 2020 with toxic epidermal necrolysis (TENS), a life threatening skin disorder that causes severe painful skin rash that blisters and peels.
Kalebs body was 90% affected and we spent 73 days in Hospital. First 5 days we spent on the CH ward before being moved to the Pediatric Intensive care Unit where he spent 12 days and underwent multiple procedures until he was finally stable enough to move to the CK unit where we spent our last 29 days in Winnipeg Health Science Centre having Dressing changes and Amniotic Membranes Sewn into his eyes. Kaleb spent 3.5 weeks in Brandon on the Pediatric ward healing before being released home.
Since being released Kaleb has undergone a few eye surgeries to scrape the scar tissue out of his eyes. Last June we went to Sick Kids in Toronto to undergo Eye surgery to have Mucous membranes grafted from his mouth into his eyelids.
He has a wonderful team of doctors in Winnipeg that we see regularly.
Kaleb deals with dry eyes and inflammation in his eyes daily. And although we don’t know what caused Kalebs first outbreak. He continues to live life as a kid and fights off the pain.
He loves to show cattle, Be on the Farm, and Play hockey. Kaleb lives with his Mom and dad Leah & Kyle as well as his younger sister Lakelyn. He’s always willing to tell anyone about his disease and how anyone could be affected. Kaleb never lets anything get him down.
Our family couldn’t be more excited to be granted a wish from Westman Dream for Kids. To get to make a lifetime of memories as a family in our Camper.
We cannot thank Westman Dreams for Kids and Pik A Dilly RV Centre Brandon enough for what they have done for our family and the memories we will get to make camping as a family
