Cam has been battling Ependymoma, brain and spine cancer, since August, 20, 2009. She was just 3 years old when she was diagnosed. Cam was placed on hospice care and had one simple wish. To meet One Direction.
Team Campbell worked tirelessly getting the attention of Harry Styles. Styles tweeted Cam and came through for Cam in a big way and visited her at home.
Cam's mom Robin said,"He was emphatic that he did not do this for publicity. He truly just wanted to meet Cam. I would not want anyone to get the wrong idea."
There is no known cure for multiple recurrent anaplastic ependymoma.
