Cameron’s Story

This avid runner and basketball player was on the peak of his high school career when his left leg began to bother him.

Grateful for Proximity

After an x-ray and numerous tests, it was clear that 17-year-old Cameron Caldwell had a tumor—osteosarcoma to be exact.

For Cameron, a high school senior, this was challenging timing. His athletic passion took a seat on the bench while he embarked on a seven-month treatment regimen.

Throughout this process, Cameron endured limb-salvage surgery and intense chemotherapy to combat his disease. 

He received most of his care from Dr. Ellen Plummer at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center; an experienced doctor who became a very special person to Cameron and his family.

Cameron’s parents are thankful for supporters of this department and helping make it “a little more like home” for them during Cameron’s visits.

On June 30, 2019, Cameron departed Asante Rogue Regional cancer-free and full of gratitude.

“I can’t thank the people who support Asante enough for all they’ve done for me, my son and my family.” 

—Calvin, Cameron’s Father
