By the time we got to Cameron's, we were spent. We started to go through his clothes and found that each of his favorite things brought back a memory that made us laugh or smile.
We got to hear more about his business, the Sweet Garlic Company ( http://www.sweetgarliccompany.com), which was his passion and reason for moving to California. We got to spend some quality time with his roommate and business partners and we got to sit in his favorite chair, lay on his bed and experience the world he was living in.
After all the stories were shared and laundry was sorted, we were about to leave and Cameron's mom said, one more look. We tried to convince her otherwise but she was determined. And we are so glad, because buried in Cameron's laundry was a jersey, a Seahawks jersey. But not just any jersey, a Marshawn Lynch jersey in size 0-3 months. Something we bought last christmas for our future baby.
Cameron only brought a few things with him to California, and one of the things he brought was this jersey. Our jaws dropped and then we all smiled and looked up to the heavens to say - we hear you Cameron, and everyone has come together to make this happen.
I will never be able to say it enough - thank you for your support. It is everything.
I am beyond grateful. Today we fed-ex'd a check for $6,000 to the doctor who will fly up to do the procedure for us. I was feeling so defeated when I found out the procedure would be so expensive and the money had to be paid upfront. I had lost not just my fiance and my future, but my future family too.
It was incredible watching the campaign go, we sat together around the table, refreshing the page, sending up prayers of gratitude and crying tears of joy.
The additional funds will help support Cameron's family with medical costs and the service and if we have any left over it will go to the second part of the process, to help with the fertility treatments.
Your support has given the gift of life to me and to my family - it has given me the chance to continue the dream that Cameron and I had together. I could never express my gratitude in words. Thank you is not enough. May you all be as blessed in your lifetime as I have been from your support.
Please know any extra funds will go to Cameron's service and medical expenses.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, from the depths of our souls for picking up our broken pieces and carrying them for us until time can heal. God is good!!
Stephanie I am in tears after reading the post about finding the infant seahawks jersey amongst Cameron's belongings. What a testimony that is and God really has blessed you beyond measure with this opportunity! You're going to be a wonderful Mom!
I love you
Im so sorry for your loss, if i could i would help. I hope people will contribute and help you out.
Love you cam and cam's family! I grew up with Cameron, day and night every day it seemed like for a long time. I swear I have a million memories of all the fun we had! This was a huge eye opener for me and I gotta live the good life for your legacy bro. Forever be missed Cam, until next time.
God Bless and Best of wishes!
Aw very touching sad story Baby wishes to you. I'm looking to adopt. Please everyone Any donation counts. Thank you
I know I don't know you Stephanie, but I knew Cameron in high school and a little while after. He is an amazing person and touched so many people. I'm sure through this, you can see just a little bit about the positive effect he had on people as well as how many people are here to support you unconditionally through this devastating/joyous time. I have added you on facebook because I would like to continue and see the process and progress you are going through, and also remember how many people you have behind you for support at moments when you feel just a little bit too weak. We all loved Cam, and are excited for this next journey for all of you. Xoxo
Please keep up updated. We'd love to hear of your pregnancy.
I really have no words to explain this but I will try... If you had asked me last week if someone should harvest sperm from their loved one I would not even have begun to know to answer such a question... And the truth is my opinion is irrelevant as are any others you may hear in the wake of having made this decision for yourself - so I pray that you will stand confident. I want you to know I woke up yesterday and felt in my heart that you were to have Cameron's child... I prayed all day about it ! Before going to bed I opened my Facebook & saw this and sat in shock! By that time all the money you needed had been raised and then some. All I can say is that God is the author of peace and he is writing a unique story through this... I believe that through his own struggles Cameron found lasting peace in his relationship with Jesus and that my friends is what leaving a legacy is all about!
This brings tears to my eyes, I'm very sorry for your loss and I pray for you and your family God is good and he will bless you I'm so happy you reached beyond your goal and I hope it continues good bless you your soon to be pregnancy and yours and Camerons family
This baby will be the biggest blessing in your whole entire life! Good luck with everything! I'm so incredibly sorry about the loss of your love, however this is a chance to keep a very special piece of him with you forever! Your amazing for doing this and so very brave.
