Hi! I'm Agent Hummell.
When I was only 3 days old I was transferred to Childrens hospital where I was admitted into the PICU with so many tubes, cords and machines attached to me. My parents stayed at my bedside. The medical genetics team diagnosed me with a rare metabolic disorder called Methylmalonic Acidemia (MMA). I was the smallest baby to receive dialysis at 2.3 kg, I was very sick and the doctors were unsure if they could save me, BUT I am a warrior, I survived. MMA is a complex medical disorder and I follow a strict diet (low protein), my body is unable to safely break down the protein, and I have a special medical formula. I have underwent several tests, blood work, surgeries and illness where I ended up in the hospital for days, even weeks trying to recover. I have a gtube for feeding me and making sure I get the proper hydration, cause my kidneys don't work so well. When I was 4 yrs old I had a liver transplant and it has helped to keep me healthier and spend less time in the hospital. I still follow a low protein diet, have medical formula, take a lot of medicine, including an injection every night before bed, I need bloodwork done and have to see my doctors in London every 3 months or sooner if I'm not well. In going through all of this my whole life, Childrens hospital has always made my stay and treatments easier with child life explaining procedures through medical play, playing with me, making me laugh, bringing me toys, and visits with Olley the clown. Thanks to generous donations these things are possible, and make my hospital visits a positive one!!! My name is Carver Hummell and I'm 9 years old, I am an MMA warrior.
