Surprise Cookout For Teen Celebrating Two Years Being Seizure Free

Kyle Ocampo  cookout

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB)– Friends and family gathered this afternoon at a surprise cook-out in Holyoke to celebrate 13-year-old Kyle Ocampo being seizure free for the last two years.

Ocampo was in the news a couple years ago as his loved ones threw a benefit for him so he could undergo brain surgeries in Boston and try to live a normal teen life without any surgeries.

His family said, “Well, on August 25th, we are celebrating him being seizure-free for the last two years. It is something that is such a big deal to a kid that is back in school for the second year after being tutored from home for so long.”

ABC40 was there to capture his surprise celebration and will share that story with you later!
