Cameron is a Fish

Cameron is a fish and loves water. He has always wanted to swim, play in the water, put his face in the water and pool. We started swim lessons when he was a tiny baby and he would always want to go, go go. His goal was to swim by himself. The traditional style of swimming was not working with his right hand and leg. (Cameron has hemiparesis.) We told him he had to find his own style of swimming. A way he would not get so tired.

This summer at age 7 he can jump off the diving board swim to us by himself. He can go down a water slide and swim to us. He can jump into the pool and swim to us his own way. He said ""I did it! I did it! I can swim!" Here is a picture of his brother Evan (age 5) and Cameron at the pool. Way to go Cameron! ~ Cameron's mom
