Cameron James Fisher, 3, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 17, 2010 in his mother’s arms after being surrounded by the family and loved ones who had supported his recovery for so long. He died following a long and courageous battle with an unknown illness. Cameron was born in Raleigh to Jonathan and Laura Fisher on July 19, 2006.
Cameron loved to read books more than anything else. Whether it be his parents or doctors and nurses, he loved to be read to. He loved space and knew all the planets. All rocks, even gravel were dubbed asteroids. Cameron loved his aunts who all made him laugh. In the last few weeks he was most proud of his baby sister and took his new role of big brother very seriously.
