The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League would like to congratulate its officials for their generosity in helping out one of their own, Tim Hamel and his wife Melissa. Officials in collaboration with the League raised over $5 000 to help the young family following a series of complications during the birth of their first son, Cameron Joseph, who was born four weeks prematurely due to a condition called Gastroschisis.
Since Tim and Melissa learned about this condition at 19 weeks, they have had weekly appointment at the IWK in Halifax. During this time and since Cameron’s birth, Tim has been driving back and forth between PEI to Halifax to make regular visits while Melissa has been staying with Cameron at the IWK.
Cameron is now almost 2 months old and will have to stay at the Hospital for another 3-6 months while he recovers from his surgeries and the doctors monitor his progress.
Our thoughts are with the young couple during this trying time as we wish Cameron Joseph a speedy recovery.
