Newstalk KIT

A Yakima teenager will serve as the 2014 Washington Champion for Children’s Miracle Network. Kelly Connoughton, director of the Children’s Miracle Network at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, made the announcement Thursday.

“Camery Broers has been selected this year as the Washington state representative ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network and she will travel to Washington, D.C., and Orlando in November and represent our state,”¬†Connoughton said.

Camery was born with DiGeorge Syndrome, a disorder caused by a defect in chromosome 22. She has undergone multiple surgeries since she was a month old, including two open-heart surgeries and a surgery to correct a severe curvature in her spine, adding two inches to her height. Children’s Miracle Network raises money for Memorial Hospital,¬†which partners with organizations to help children with special needs including Children’s Village in Yakima.

Added Camery: “I am happy to help Children’s Miracle Network so that other kids like me can get the help they need. Having Memorial Hospital and Children’s Village here means a lot to me.”
