This picture was taken in fall 2007, just before Cameron's third relapse. We struggled with the decision of him playing. We were openly criticized by other parents for allowing him to play less than a year after his first transplant. He repeatedly asked if he could play. He hardly asked us for anything. He had the full support of his doctor and nurse practitioner. It was hard to explain to those parents that there is not a causal relationship between football and leukemia. I think it was really good for him - it did increase his strength and endurance & it made him very happy. I'm so glad we let him play, one less thing to feel guilty about.
Cameron was shy and modest. He loved this picture of himself. When he saw it, he made it the background on my laptop and titled it "The Man Who Brought Football to America."
Thanks to Jodie for helping me with the picture sizing. My apologies to Jodie for mis-spelling her name,
