BERNARDSVILLE, NJ - Campbell (Cam) Hoyt has been battling Ependymoma, brain and spine cancer, since August, 20, 2009. She was just 3 years old when she was diagnosed. Cam has now been placed on hospice care and has one simple wish. To meet One Direction.
There is no known cure for multiple recurrent anaplastic ependymoma.
Earlier this summer, Campbell had major disease progression and the Hoyt's insurance company was refusing treatment for Cam. On July 16, through the power of social media and the generosity and tenaciousness of the local community, over $47,000 was raised in just one day and due in part to the awareness and pressure generated, the insurance company agreed to cover treatment for Cam.
Campbell has now been placed on hospice care and has one simple wish. This is what her mother posted yesterday:
Ok folks. Miss Cam has asked for one thing for the last three years- to meet 1D, in particular Harry Styles. We've tried every way we have had available to us. Time is short. If you know anyone who can help... We just are looking for a personalized video message to Cam fro...m the boys. We've given up on a meet and greet. But to hear Harry and Niall and Louis and Zayn and Liam say "Halo Campbell. We hear you're not feeling well... But we wanted you to know we think you're beautiful". and sing her fav 1D song ....that would bring the biggest smile to her face. So, Team Campbell -GO!
