Check out the entire story below:
Miles was diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma after his parents noticed a lump in his right foot. His treatment was aggressive, including five rounds of chemotherapy and eventually the amputation of his foot, which he tolerated like a champ. He took well to his prosthesis—curious about the new appendage to his body. A little warrior until the end, Miles lost his battle just after his first birthday in February 2021.
“He was such a beacon of light to our family. Even with all the pokes and prods, he was always a happy, friendly, trusting little guy. He made an impact on everyone who met him, and he is missed tremendously.” - Kate and Kent
Miles received part of his care at the POGO Satellite Clinic at the Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. There are eight POGO Satellite Clinics bringing care closer to home in communities across Ontario.
