Cameron NewmanCameron is a 15 year old boy who loves playing the piano, viola, hanging with friends and family, and cleaning the pool. He likes watching Netflex, fighting with his little brother, and providing service to his community. On August 22, 2015 Cameron volunteered as an Assistant Main Stage Coordinator for the Rensselaer Community Day sponsored by New H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Excel) Greater Community Development, Inc.

After an MRI on August 25, 201 Cameron was sent immediately to the emergency room where is was diagnoised with a tumor on his brain stem, which was identified as an ependymoma cancer tumor. He underwent a 12 hour surgery to remove the cancer, however due to the risky area of the brain where the tumor is located all of the tumor was unable to be removed. As a result, Cameron’s medical plan includes 7 weeks of chemotherapy, a possible second 12 hour surgery, and 7 weeks of radiation. Given the unforeseen medical expenses and loss of wages due to his treatment contributions would be greatly appreciated. Please leave Cameron and his family a video message, greetings, or post well wishes. Likewise, the family will post updates as Cameron progresses along. Thanks to family, friends, Columbia High School, and community at large for your prayers, expression of kindness, care, and concern for Cameron during this time of healing.
