On April 27th, 2017 Sgt. Cameron H. Thomas was killed in action in Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, during combat operations in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

He was survived by his parents, Andre and Heather Thomas and was a loving brother to 11 additional siblings. His courage was rooted from being raised by such giving and amazing parents. He experienced their love and support watching them raise 7 adopted children, that added onto the 4 biological brothers and sisters Cameron already had. Along with supporting and taking care of this many children, whenever a friend of Cameron’s was in need, they would open arms and provide a home to them as well.

This love was shown through Cameron’s actions, building friendships and bonds that will last long past his life.

As life long friends of Cameron, we are putting this fundraiser together in order to relieve his family of the burdens that come with planning a funeral. In such a time of despair, we are reaching out to those who hold Cameron and his family dear to their hearts, to help with this financial weight.

The funds from this campaign will be used for the Celebration of Life, Funeral Services, and any additional support that Cameron's Family should need. Any remaining funds will be donated to a charity in Cameron's honor.  

The dates and times for the Celebration of Life and Funeral Service will be added soon.

Thank you for your generosity and support in this time of need.

Hello everyone. I would like to thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart for the generosity and support that has been shown for Sgt. Cameron Thomas, both through this GoFundMe campaign, as well as community donations for the celebration of life that was held on Sunday. I have spoken with Devin Thomas (the brother of Sgt. Cameron Thomas), and together we are organizing for him to withdrawal and receive the funds from this campaign, and he will coordinate with his parents to see that the funds from this campaign are spent accordingly. Once again, the funds that were raised in this campaign are going to be used for any reimbursement for the celebration of life that was held on Sunday, May 7th in Kettering, Ohio, as well as any and all support for the Thomas family in this devastating time of need. If there are any remaining funds, they will be donated to a charity, or some sort of charity will be created, in honor of Cameron. Once again, his friends and family would like to thank everyone who has showed their support to our fallen friend, brother, and hero.

Over $20,000 in less than 24 hours! Words cannot even begin to describe how happy I am for all the overwhelming support Cameron has received. We have received donations from all over the world, and they continue to pour in as I am writing this to all of you. Our friend was the best guy in absolutely every aspect of his life. Everything he did was the biggest and best and he approached every goal or obstacle with 100% effort and determination. That is why our group of friends has taken it upon ourselves to remember Cameron in the biggest and best way we possibly can. Cameron paid the ultimate sacrifice to support us so we have to show him how much we can possibly support him now. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank each and every one of you for donating and sharing, and we hope that you will continue to share and support our best friend and his family throughout this absolutely devastating time. I will continue to update everyone along the way. Thank you all again.
