PHOENIX, AZ — The Phoenix Police Department is recognizing a Valley boy who started his own charity after dealing with life-long challenges.
Campbell Faulkner, his mom Carrie and sister Sage received a box full of toys on Saturday.
“So many children will be happy about it,” Campbell said.
It’s a donation to Campbell’s charity called Campbell’s Crew Cares, which allows children in need to buy clothes and toys.
Shortly after birth, Campbell was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, which doctors say has no cure.
A few years ago, Campbell went on a trip with the Make a Wish Foundation.
He says he decided to sell the World Series jersey he received and used the money to take kids shopping for Christmas.
Since then, Campbell has inspired others to give back.
“A lot of people never meet their hero,” Carrie said. “I was blessed to give birth to mine. Campbell’s a hero and I’m so lucky to have him in my life.”
