Cameron was a compassionate young man with a lot of love to give. He lost his life at the age of 23 to the disease of addiction. Cameron was pursuing a career in the field of Nursing because he wanted to help others. Cameron loved his job working with children with disabilities. His famous saying was, "you know it was a good day at work when you come home with paint and marker colors all over your hands." Cameron was a black belt in Taekwondo, he loved doing magic tricks, was a pro at solving a Rubik's Cube, and enjoyed making origami. Cameron enjoyed spending time with his family, he loved his animals, especially his bearded dragon. Cameron would give the last dollar in his pocket to someone in need. He never wanted to see people go without. He had a heart of gold. After spending a Christmas at Renaissance House and seeing first-hand the amazing people who cared about the residents, Cameron started a tradition to give back each year by giving the rehab program a Christmas gift of the residents' choosing. Cameron wanted to be one of those people that spread the love during the holidays. Despite him no longer being here physically, his tradition will remain alive because he would not want it any other way.
