Meet This Week’s Kid Captain — Camdyn Reisner [VIDEO]

The Hawkeyes will face Michigan State this weekend in East Lansing, but they still need a Kid Captain for away games!

This week’s Kid Captain from the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital is 11-year-old Camdyn Reisner from Dubuque.

Camdyn’s medical issues began when she was only 21-days-old, when she suddenly stopped breathing in her mother Mandy’s arms. Luckily, Mandy’s brother-in-law happened to be at their home at the time, and as an EMT, he was able to immediately perform CPR. After she arrived at the local hospital, they continued to perform CPR for almost an hour. She was eventually transferred over to Iowa City in a helicopter. Camdyn was then placed in a medically-induced coma, and the outlook did not look good. However, Camdyn did wake up and begin to improve, until her heart rate became incredibly high. That’s when she was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), which is an irregular heartbeat.

Since then, Camdyn’s care team at the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital has been very accommodating. Because of her oxygen deprivation, she has had to work very hard to overcome developmental delays and involuntary muscle stiffness in her legs, and has gone through different therapies and several surgeries. She’s definitely a fighter!

Congrats to Camdyn on being named a Kid Captain! What an inspiring story!
