Blood cancer doesn’t stop for anything.

Cameron’s blood cancer diagnosis came out of the blue – at the worst possible time.

The 32-year-old and his wife Mykayla were busy bringing up their one-year-old daughter Penny and preparing for the arrival of their second, Addison, when Cameron found out he had Burkitt’s lymphoma.

Suddenly, they were thrust into a foreign world of hospitals, chemotherapy and debilitating side effects. To make things even worse, the life-saving treatment Cameron needed was in Adelaide, two hours away from his home in Port Pirie.

Cameron feared he would have to leave family behind and spend Christmas alone to get the care he needed.

Please help provide families like Cameron’s with the accommodation and support they need to fight blood cancer together.

Thankfully, accommodation was available for Cameron’s family at the Leukaemia Foundation Bridgestone Blood Cancer Centre near his hospital in Adelaide.

That meant Mykayla could be by his side as his pain and blood cancer symptoms worsened. It meant he could receive regular visits – and lots of cuddles and kisses – from Penny.

And it meant he could be there to hold his newborn baby girl Addison when she arrived while the family were staying at Leukaemia Foundation accommodation.

Having his family by his side gave Cameron the strongest possible reason to get through his treatment – and get better.
