My Story

Enlightened, visionary, hilariously funny, generous and kind. He loved to read, tell jokes, laugh (even crack himself up just to experience the euphoria of laughing), video games, classic movies, good music. He played violin and piano and sang like an angel. He never had a favorite anything... rainbow was his favorite color. He loved sushi and mashed potatoes, corn dogs and lobster. At the age of 12, Cameron conceived Brain Candy! (www.braincandymag.org), a magazine to be written by and for kids living with brain cancer and other critical illnesses. He said that when a child is on chemo, radiation, steroids, anti-seizure meds and everything else they must endure, it is a very isolating experience. He wanted to bridge these kids all over the world, and create community so that not one of them ever felt as though they were going through it alone. "No one is alone," he would say.
