Benefit for Cameron Taylor

The community is rallying behind one local boy, who they say is quite the fighter.

A benefit was held for eight-year-old Cameron Taylor at Adamsville Elementary School. He was diagnosed this past June with a rare form of bone cancer; part of his leg had to be removed in September after chemotherapy treatments were successful.

"On the bright side he actually was cast for his first prosthetic leg two weeks ago, just this week he got to go up and try on his prosthetic leg for the first time," said Cameron’s Aunt Denise Spiker.

Spiker says that several local residents came up with the event help raise money for Cameron’s future medical treatments. She says the family is thankful for all of the support.

"Cameron when we were getting ready for this before he had to go to the hospital on Thursday, he’s in the hospital at Children’s with chemo, he said man this is a pretty big deal isn’t it Aunt Niecy, and I said yes it is," she said.

Cameron will receive final adjustments to his new prosthetic leg and be able to wear it next week.
