In 2016, when he was only 5-years-old, Cameron Scott was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Medulloblastoma. The diagnosis came after it took him longer than usual to recover from a nasty fall down a flight of stairs. Cameron started treatment for this high-risk stage four cancer at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and as of November 2018, he was given a new, clean bill of health.
Doctors at St. Jude removed the tumors during a four-hour surgery and Cameron had to undergo six months of chemotherapy, which were covered by the hospital.
“We are overwhelmingly HAPPY to say that as of this date, cancerous TUMOR cannot be found in Cameron’s body!!” his family wrote on the fundraiser page. “Cameron is now working on getting stronger and healthier. He does still require a feeding tube until he is able to eat on his own again. We’ll take it!”
Many wonder what’s next for the 8-year-old superhero and his loving family. As Scott continues to heal up at St. Jude’s, the family is kindly requesting assistance with getting their lives back on track—particularly as the family had to downsize on quite a lot (including a business, two cars, and a house).
Their GoFundMe can be found here.
Our thoughts are with them as they continue a new part of this health journey.
