Oklahoma City miracle child and cancer survivor, Camden, has been chosen as one of 8 finalists in a design contest for White Cloud tissue brand. Kruger Products' White Cloud brand, sold exclusively at Walmart, has invited miracle kids across the nation to draw their own tissue box designs for a chance to have it printed on a White Cloud Facial Tissue box to be sold in Walmart stores.  Three designs will be selected by January 30th and, in addition, the winning CMN Hospitals will each receive a $15,000 donation from Kruger.

At the age of 18 months, Camden was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and admitted to the Jimmy Everest Cancer Center at Children's Hospital to begin treatment. He underwent chemotherapy and eight rounds of full body irradiation in preparation for a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. Under the care of Dr. William Meyer, CMRI Ben Johnson Chair in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, and his team, Camden is currently in remission. He continues to visit the oncology clinic yearly along with regular check-ups from neurologists and pulmonologist.

"It's great to see the miracle children act as ambassadors for Children's Hospital," said Kathy McCracken, Children's Hospital Foundation Executive Director. "Their involvement is essential in raising awareness for pediatric healthcare.  In line with Children's Hospital Foundation's mission, contests such as this help support pediatric research, education and clinical care."

Please help Camden's design be one of the top three so he can see his design on the shelf at Walmart and a generous donation can be made to Children's Hospital Foundation.

For information on how to vote for Camden, visit www.okchf.org. Please join us in voting once a day until the end of the competition on January 30th. Once printed on a special collection of White Cloud Facial Tissue boxes, three CMN kids' designs will be on the shelves at Walmart stores by May 2013.
