ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Camille, who is from Evansville, Indiana, was born with a rare condition that kept the bone in her left leg from forming properly.

At a week old, Camille became a patient at Shriners Children’s St. Louis.

“The family ended up coming here for the expertise that we have in St. Louis,” said Dr. J. Gordon, Camille’s doctor.

Since then, she has had two surgeries to lengthen her leg. At just 6 years old, Camille will have several more surgeries at Shriner’s Children’s St. Louis.

“We weren’t expecting a miracle, but so far Shriners has provided us with just that,” Camille’s dad told First Alert 4.
