On December 22, 2015, 16-year-old Camron Cozzi learned that he had a rare brain tumor called DIPG. The doctors gave his family the devastating news that there is no cure for this type of cancer and that the cancer is very aggressive.
Despite the fact that there is no current cure for DIPG, Cam’s family is leaving no stone unturned. He did radiation and is now doing immunotherapy in Germany. We all remain hopeful that the immunotherapy will be the breakthrough this dreadful disease needs!
Cam is a sophomore at Bonney Lake High School and an avid lacrosse player. He plays for both his high school and Maniax club team. His older brother Jordan is also a lax player. When Whales Lax learned of Cam’s story, they knew we had to reach out and help in any small way we could. Camron has earned the admiration of many for his bravery in battling this disease, including Major League Lacrosse’s Paul Rabil who sent a video to Camron, which you can watch below.
Follow Whales Lax on Instagram (@whaleslax) and Twitter (@whales_lax) to keep up on our team, Cam’s progress and our fundraising efforts. Help Cam fulfill his wish to get on The Ellen Show. Tag @TheEllenShow in Twitter and Instagram posts from Whales & others in the lax community.
Pod 4 is made up of boys with grad years 2020 and 2021. They are asking supporters to make donations to the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to funding DIPG research.
Please pray for Camron & his family.
