Hello, my name is Bethany and I am raising money for my friend Cameron Waters. He was born with a lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis(CF). His disease has him in the hospital constantly and now every month, 2 weeks at a time. CF is known as a childhood disease, which means people with CF don’t typically make it to adulthood. Cameron is now 24 and will be turning 25 in November! He is on the lung transplant list and the chance of getting one soon looks pretty good. This lung transplant has many risks but if it is successful the 5- year survival rate is 25 percent. He has lost so many important people in his life to this disease and surgery and he wants to have one last hurrah before the surgery.
If you know Cameron, you know that he loves winter sports of all kinds. His CF puts limits on his abilities to snowboard, but it never seems to stop him. This January the Winter X Games will be in Aspen Colorado and I know it is his dream to be able to go. The X Games has snowboarding, skiing, and motorsports also, Cameron’s favorite snowboarder Shaun White will be there! This may be his last winter season and I know making this trip happen for him would be more than just a dream come true.
Being sick is expensive and it becomes astronomical when you have a lifelong disease like CF, that has you in and out of hospitals unable to work. The $2,500 I am hoping to raise will go to pay for the cost up there, his hotel stay, ski lift rentals, food and memorabilia.
I made this in hopes that Cameron will be able go on trip because it will be incredible chance to do something he loves but also to give him that feeling of normality for a couple weeks. I want him to have a trip that doesn’t involve a hospital bracelet or a breath taking experience that means an oxygen tank. Cameron is an amazing, sweet person that I know deserves a chance like this.
Thank you and God bless!
