Reaching out to a Community of Support

Welcome to Cameron’s Carelines page! Thank you for coming to support Cameron in his journey of recovery. Here you can:

Our son Cameron is five years old. He was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia earlier this year.  Aplastic Anemia is basically a blood disorder caused by a failure in his bone marrow, which fails to produce blood cells. It's pretty much wiped out his immune system, therefore he's always prone to infections and uncontrollable bleeding.  It has been an extremely hard time for us mentally, physically and financially. His diagnosis has really taken a toll on our family. Nothing can prepare you for watching your child go through so much pain and physically seeing how medications affect his body and change him. Cameron use to be a very active child, running around, playing with his cousins and toys. But ever since February he's been a completely different kid. He's always tired, laying around, not eating or wanting to get out of bed. This really has been the hardest thing we've been through. He tells us all the time that he wishes he wasn't sick and asks why he has to go through so much and its honestly heart breaking. How do you tell your child that the doctors don't have a reason as to why this happened to him, and that it only happens to two out of every one million people and he just happens to be one of those two. I had to stop working to take care of him full time while my husband works. We have weekly appointments for blood and platelet transfusions. He's also been admitted in the hospital almost every week for three to five days as we get ready for his bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, having only one income is hard on my husband to pay bills, especially now that we have to drive back and forth to Miami. We would appreciate any amount that anyone can donate. It would really help us catch up on bills and be one less stress we have to focus on during these upcoming months, as he goes through chemotherapy and transplant. Thank you!
