Emergency surgery helps 8-year-old return to active lifestyle

December 29, 2011

ARGOS — Chaz Downey, 8, of Argos, loves sports. His favorite is basketball, and he can shoot hoops with amazing accuracy for his age, according to his mother Jackie Campbell. Chaz especially likes cheering on his older brother, Chandler, at his basketball and soccer games.
If it hadn’t been for quick action by his doctors two years ago, however, Chaz might not be able to do the things he loves today.

At no added cost to members, Fitness Forum staff will consult with each individual and help them figure out how to realistically meet their goals.
“New year’s resolutions sometimes fall by the wayside,” said fitness manager Julie Rodriguez. “We want to know what those goals are and set a timeframe to them.”
