Family of Cameron Faria

$45,465 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 605 people in 10 days
On Thursday July 5th my nephew Cameron was a passenger in a vehicle that was in a horrible accident in Middleboro Mass. The injuries to which Cameron sustained caused him to be life flighted to a Boston Hospital where he continues to fight for his life.  The head/brain trauma will require Cameron and his family to be spending a lengthy stay in the hospital while the amazing medical personnel continue to help him fight.
Once Cameron is healed from the brain trauma he will also face many more procedures and lengthy surgeries on his jaw which was badly broken as well.
This time will clearly be a time his parents will not be able to work and financial burdens of upholding a house hold and any medical bills will start to come into play. This page is intended to help alleviate that burden that they should not have to be worried about at this time. Their sole focus needs to be on Cameron's recovery and their Family.
The Family is so grateful for the out pouring of support by Friends, Family and Community. For all who have reached out wanting to help in some way I hope this helps.

Thank You
Nicole

Update on Cam from Dad

Cameron had surgery today that went well. Dr's installed both a trachea and feeding tube and removed the tubes going through his mouth. His temp was pretty good today the machine did not have to work to hard to maintain his temp. He is still in a coma but they are slowly weaning down his sedation. The goal is to get it down and try to wake him up, but no definite timeline. He will also need major jaw surgery as soon he is stable enough, the plastic surgeons are chomping at the bit but he's not ready yet. I'm hopeful things will keep going in the same direction. Dr's told us to judge his progress in weeks not days, it's going to be a long road. But everyone's support and prayers seem to be working.

Today’s update from Cameron’s Dad

Just a little update, Cam is still heavily sedated and in a coma. He is still having some pressure issues that is slowing down progress Dr's do not seem overly concerned. He being so young does not help with the pressure because his brain is so tight and there is not much room for expansion. He is also having issues with fever so thay have had him on a machine that regulates his body temp they do not believe it is caused by infection more of a neuro issue. We just need him to get through these pressure issues before they can start thinking about dropping sedation and getting him on the road to recovery. This has been the longest 10 days of lives and everyone's, prayers, love and support have really helped us along this road.

Today’s update from Cameron’s Dad

Quick update, Camerons surgery was successful with no complications. They removed a large portion of his skull, basically the right side. It will be stored in the bone bank and reattached when all signs of swelling are gone, which could be a while. He remains in critical condition and will still be heavily sedated for the next few days. Then we will start evaluating his path for recovery.
That's all for now, baby steps but I remain hopeful.

Update from Cameron’s Dad

Hi all, just wanted to give a quick update on Cameron. Cameron is still fighting, he is still in a coma and heavily sedated. The doctors just decided to remove a peice of his skull to release the pressures that are building. It sounds very bad but the doctors say it is a very common procedure, major surgery none the less. He is scheduled to have this tomorrow morning and should be back in the ICU by noon if all goes well. Positives of this is that they will be able to reduce his sedation more aggressively after this and get a kind of a feel for where he is at. That is where he is at I will update everyone again when I have more info. Unfortunately with brain injuries it is an extremely slow process and the hardest part is the waiting and the unknown. The nurses have told us for now and until further notice he can have no more visitors except immediate family. So if you come up to visit unfortunately you will not be able to go in to see him. I just wanted and believe you all deserve to get updates as much as I can give them. You all have shown us so much support and love and don't think we could get through this without you all. Thank you and please keep praying.
