TODAY reported that Tamika and Wendell Scott were concerned after their son Cameron took a fall down the stairs and then began complaining about back pain. Even though the other kids in the house had minor scrapes and falls before, this was different because of the back pain. At the doctor's an MRI brought to light the problem.
They learned that a tumor had started at the stem of his brain and then traveled down his spine to take root in his body.
Despite the dire diagnosis, Wendell knew they would continue to fight hard for Cameron's life. The little boy spent nearly a year at the famous St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. The decision proved to save his life.
The amazing medical team at St. Jude's was able to isolate Cameron's specific type of cancer and create a personalized plan for his treatment.
As the youngest of six children, the cancer news turned the entire household on its heels as everyone dropped everything to make Cameron's fight the priority. Wendell had to put his small business on hold while he continued to travel with Cameron to receive the chemotherapy and radiation treatments that he needed to survive.
The incredible St. Jude's Hospital paid for all the costs of treatment, and the Scott family is overjoyed that their own personal super-hero is all smiles again. In December 2018, as per USA Today, his doctors finally cleared him to return to school full time. He is now 10 years old.
This heartwarming story of courage and love must be spread to everyone that you know. Everyone needs a good miracle story to restore their faith in life and love. Be sure to spread the joy with this amazing story of Cameron's great comeback.
