PA Summer Camp Gives Quadriplegic Children New Lease on Life

PA Vent Camp is offering overnight summer camps to quadriplegic children between 4 and 18 years old who require a ventilator to breathe.  This unique camp affords the children many opportunities to participate in activities they otherwise couldn’t have done, such as going down a zip-line, rock climbing, boating, and swimming. Trained volunteers run the camp, including doctors, nurses, nurses in training, and respiratory therapists.  The program is largely funded by private donations and through Children’s Miracle Network.

Those suffering from severe brain and spinal cord injuries, especially as a result of an accident at the fault of another have a lifetime of pain and medical expenses, and find their world drastically changed. This is especially troubling when these accidents occur to children.  Attorney Doug Stoehr has dealt with claims involving severe brain and spinal cord injuries, and recently settled a case for over $1.5 million involving a severe brain injury. If you would like to consult with him about your case, please contact our law office.
