Cameron Piorek: Rehabilitation At The International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland

Cameron will still be released on Thursday from St. Jude, but he will NOT be going home to Laguna Niguel. Instead, he will be staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Brea Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. On Sunday, he and Brandon and his Grandparents will board a plane and head off to The International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. This is the center that treated Christopher Reeve and it a leading center in the world for spinal cord recovery and rehabilitation. It was a huge victory for Kelly to get this opportunity and a VERY special Thank You goes out to all of the people who helped make this happen. For more information on the center, please go to their website at

While at the center, Cameron will undergo four to five hours of VERY intensive rehabilitation therapy every day for the next three weeks. He will then return home for an addtional six weeks of treatment at the St. Jude Outpatient Center in Brea. It is hoped that he can then begin rehabilitation at Project Walk in Carlsbad, California.

In addtion to all of his rehabilitation, Cameron will also be catching up on his school work. At this point, he will only need to complete the work for his World History class. He is looking forward to September, when he can resume classes at Aliso Niguel High School with his classmates as a JUNIOR!!

The Piorek’s are still planning on having a coming home party for Cameron, but it will now be rescheduled for when he comes home from Baltimore.

Please continue to keep Cameron, and his family, in your prayers !!

The Orange County Register will be coming to the Embassy Suites on Saturday to interview Cameron and take pictures of him with his flag. They will be featuring Cameron on the front page of the Aliso Niguel News, which is published by the OC Register. It is distributed on Thursdays, so look for it either next week or the following week. Whichever week it is printed, the same article will also be printed in the Sunday paper of that week.
