Cameron had a heart of gold, a unique sense of humor, and an infectious laugh that had the ability to light up a room. He saw the good in every person he met and genuinely cared for many. Cameron is not defined by his struggle with addiction, he is defined by the person he was under it all. He fought a difficult battle and worked hard everyday to better his life and make positive decisions. As a family, we are proud of all of his accomplishments and his kindheartedness. Cameron has taught us to love deeply, forgive often, have unadulterated patience and to understand that we are all better then our lowest moments. I will forever miss the sound of his laugh, his big hugs and will cherish all of our memories together.
Losing Cameron to this disease has always been my greatest fear. My heart breaks for all who live this and know there are many who undoubtedly struggle to mourn such a loss. Although it does not feel that way, know you are not alone, we will stand together to fight for health and sobriety for our families, friends, and neighbors. As a community we all need to do our part to stop this epidemic that is claiming so many young lives.
