Facility: LaRabida Children’s Hospital
I would like to nominate Chancey who is 11 years old and a long time patient of Dr. Qamar. He was placed with his grandmother when he was an infant and he had asthma and behavioral issues that he has overcome. He has worked hard in school and his grandmother has been diligent in getting him the help he needs. His parents are drug abusers, having only seen his mother once as an infant and his father twice, but since then he has had to deal with not having contact with his father as he lives with paternal grandmother. This little boy has been through a lot but continues to achieve in school and have a friendly and positive attitude.
