Avera Children's Champion

The Avera Children's Champion award recognizes how young patients not only cope with their illness or injury, but how they overcome obstacles with patience, courage, strength and even joy.

Our Current Avera Children's Champion

Maxton came to Avera Children’s on December 2. Maxton spent a total of two and half weeks with us in the Pediatric ICU and Pediatrics undergoing a variety of tests and procedures for his seizure activity. Maxton was a very brave boy! He was a strong fighter during many procedures and made sure to test his nurse’s strength every day while wrestling with them.

Maxton could be seen smiling and waving to the staff, always ready to give a 'fist bump' to anyone in the hallway! He had amazing family support and we all truly enjoyed taking care of him. He is such a happy go lucky little boy. Maxton loved wagon rides, playing with his John Deere tractor and playing catch, he always made us laugh. Congrats again from Avera Children’s! We sure hope you are enjoying your new yellow dump truck!
