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

Congratulations Elliot on becoming the newest member of Avera Children’s Champion! Elliot came to Avera Children’s ICU with pneumonia & RSV. Elliot spent a total of 20 days with us fighting for us life and had undergone a variety of tests, and procedures. Elliot was a very brave boy!

Lanny, RT Manager stated, "He never complained about wearing his 'jet pilot' mask and was the ideal pediatric patient. He was a trooper with all his procedures and tolerated everything with grace. What an awesome little boy!"

Elliot had so many different ups and downs but he fought through them doing everything he needed to do in order to get better and go home. He had amazing family support and we all truly enjoyed taking care of Elliot. He loved playing with his new train set and throwing the basketball. Congrats again from Avera Children’s!
