Afterwards, Luke found out about Heart Camp, the first camp in the nation dedicated solely to children with heart disease. He attended as a camper for two years, then volunteered as junior counselor and later a senior counselor, and still volunteers at camp till this day. He is looking forward to going back today for the start of camp and celebrating its 25th anniversary!
Luke, now 21 years old, still gives back to Children’s. He is currently a volunteer at the hospital year-round and has given over 250 hours, since he started in September 2013. He is currently helping out one day a week on our cardiology floor and the cardiac intensive care unit. He is taking classes at Pitt and wants to pursue a career in medicine.
