It’s always a pleasure to bring you stories of how your contributions to Gillette Children’s Hospital help kids. Logan Swedberg’s story is particularly touching.
At ten years old, he’s had more surgeries than birthdays and yet he’s excited to be alive and has become the poster child for Gillette Children’s Cure Pity campaign.
Logan was born with a disorder that caused an ‘S’ shaped curve in his spine. Without the first of its kind surgery at Gilette Children’s, Logan life expectancy was under 2 decades. He has also had to endure a metal halo and chest brace to help straighten his spine.
His story was recently featured on KSTP and you can learn more about Logan’s surgery and condition on their website.
Cure Pity campaign mission: “Children who have disabilities don’t need pity. They need hope. They need expert medical care. And they need a world that gives them a chance. In short, they need people like you.”
