Meet the MIGHTY Daxton!

Age 8, Sherwood Park

What makes Daxton MIGHTY:

He loves volcanoes

And creating with LEGO® and blocks

And chasing his four sisters around

And science experiments – especially when they involve baking soda and vinegar

And since being born with chronic kidney disease and undergoing two failed kidney transplants, Dax keeps things lively with the team on the Stollery’s hemodialysis unit three days a week. 

“After the scariest night of our lives, an infectious disease doctor came into Daxton’s PICU room. We were still in shock, but she was excited to describe how the innovative, quick-thinking surgical team saved our little boy's life. We beat the odds for sure.”

– Brad and Arynn, Daxton’s parents
