Nicklaus Children's

Meet Oliver: 2022 Family Advocacy Day Champion

Oliver is participating in Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day from June 12-14. Through this event, Oliver and his family will discuss his health journey, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s role in providing him with necessary health care services, and why the public and our elected officials must invest in the future of patients like Oliver.

In December 2019, Oliver went to the ER with a fever and strong abdominal pain. He was admitted to the ICU for seven days—his blood counts were low, he had no immune system and two different forms of bacteria had taken hold in his system.
