8-Year-Old ‘Superhero’ Beats Stage 4 Brain Cancer and Celebrates his Victory at Legoland!
When people meet 8-year-old Cameron Scott, a Stage 4 brain cancer survivor, they may see an adorable little boy before their eyes, but what they might not realize is that they have just met a real-life superhero. The lovable “child-superhero” also adores his fellow superhero, Batman, the most because unlike the others, Batman’s superpower is his brain.
To say that Cameron’s battle with cancer came unexpectedly is an understatement. He had fallen down the stairs and was experiencing back pain. After a visit to the hospital and an MRI later, doctors discovered that it was much worse than they initially had thought.
“It was like an out-of-body experience,” said his mom, Tamika Scott. “They initially showed us the back and his spine, and the doctor looking at the pictures turned to the other doctors and said, ‘I need another MRI. I need you to scan upward.”’ According to TODAY, doctors discovered that Cameron had a high-risk stage 4 tumor, also referred to as a Medulloblastoma. It originated in his brain and it moved to his spine.
Cameron underwent a four-hour surgery to remove the tumors. Then St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital initiated their “pioneered gene sequencing,” a “targeted treatment,” rather than overall body chemotherapy. He bravely completed six months of radiation therapy and chemotherapy and a year of treatment. Today, the inspiring child-superhero is going strong and is cancer free! Watch him celebrate his triumph at Legoland Florida Resort…
