The cancer started as a tumor on his brain and then spread to his spine in what was considered stage 4, high-risk cancer.
Doctors discovered the cancer after Cameron fell down the stairs and started experiencing back pain.
After that, Cameron went through a four-hour surgery to remove the tumors and six months of chemotherapy.
St. Jude has pioneered gene sequencing of Cameron’s form of cancer so it was able to create the highly targeted treatment program.
Today, Cameron is cancer-free, and his family — like all other St. Jude families — has not received a single hospital bill, according to WBTV.
Almost 4,000 people have shared Cameron’s photo on Twitter and Facebook along with some of their family’s cancer treatment stories.
