There’s a type of mind that, when it encounters a hardship in life, strives to escape it. But then there’s another turn of mind, too — the sort that drives right into the center of the problem and asks, “How can I help?”

For years, Camryn Freimiller thought she’d like to be a librarian. Later, she flirted with bioengineering. But then, three years ago this December, her nephew Grayson was born, and that changed everything.

“He was born with water on his brain,” said the 18-year-old Freimiller. “His mom didn’t find out until she was almost due, and he had to go straight into surgery after he was born.”
