In the summer of 2006 when Cam was seriously ill, a local Crofton girl made Cam a get well card.  From this card CAM POWER began.  Another friend of the family, Sarah Bryant, came up with the idea for the bracelets and Carol immediately knew what message to put on the bracelets!  CAM POWER and DIAMOND GIRL.  Cam chose her favorite color red.

CAM POWER lives on......

Due to the silicone in the bracelet, I was not able to actually wear it in the clean room. However, her power and strength will go on regardless of where it's located....She will live on in ALL our hearts!  These pictures are of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter located at the Goddard Space Flight Center. This spacecraft will be orbiting the Moon in early 2009 with Cami's name onboard!

6th grade class in Calvert County, MD walked in “mini relay for live” in early May.  They wore CAMPOWER bracelets and made a sign for Cami. The beautiful words below from the photographer are worth sharing. When he asked the kids who their hero was, all the kids replied that “Cami” was their hero. These are kids who have never met Cami but know the story.
