My Story

Diagnosed with medulloblastoma on February 8, 2008, Cameron was treated at Duke Medical Center where he underwent surgery, followed by six weeks of daily radiation to his brain and spinal cord and four months of high-dose chemotherapy. After taking his chemotherapy in the morning, Cameron would often ride his tricycle happily around Duke Medical Center, which earned him the nickname “Action Jackson” given by one of the center’s doctors. A beam of light to everyone who knew and loved him, Cameron was a resilient fighter who never stopped smiling. Sadly, in March 2010, a routine MRI showed that Cameron's cancer had returned. As he did before, Cameron fought every round of chemotherapy with a smile on his face. On November 9, 2011, Cameron lost his battle to childhood cancer. But, his never-fading smile and positive attitude continues to serve as an inspiration and lasting memory to his family and friends.
