My Story

Camden passed away on December 16th, 2022 after a six year battle with Leukemia. He was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 3, and immediately started treatment at Oakland Children’s Hospital. Camden fought heroically through the first diagnosis, only to be met with another Leukemia at the age of 5. Growing up it was clear that Camden was a very special boy, winning over hearts of both peers and adults with his precious smile and kind heart. He was an old soul, and his witty personality created a lasting connection with everyone he met. Through his Leukemia journey he inspired others with his courage and tenacity while undergoing rigorous treatment for years. He had two bone marrow transplants, a clinical trial in St Louis, and several relapses - none of which could bring down his beautiful spirit. Camden enjoyed what most little boys do - sports, building Legos, acquiring Pokemon cards, playing video games, and snuggling his puppy. Despite spending so much time in the hospital over the years, Camden still developed incredibly meaningful relationships with friends and family, nurses and doctors, teachers and classmates.
