Cameron was born March 13, 2014, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Alex and Emily Hollingsworth. There are so many great memories of Cameron, so many fun times. Not only was Cameron an amazing little brother, he was an amazing big brother. Cameron could light up the whole room with his crooked little grin, and give you a run for your money with his beautiful brown eyes. Cameron enjoyed spending quality time with his sisters and friends. Cameron was a Claremore zebra, and proud to say he went to Claremont Elementary. He enjoyed building legos or working on cars with his dad. He loved chasing his sisters around with water balloons or slime. He loved playing or dancing with his aunts and uncles. He recently started collecting Poke'mon cards and would watch that show with his dad and older sister, Constance. He deeply loved his grandparents and was always getting things from the gas station. He enjoyed tickling his little sister, Chandler, because they shared the same contagious laugh. On August 28th of 2019, Cameron was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. Shortly after that, he and his mom left for Memphis, Tennessee, for life saving treatment. During their stay, Cameron underwent 32 rounds of proton radiation. He made numerous friends that we all call family. Cameron had a total of 3 craniotomies and was on chemo when he started hospice. Cameron had an amazing way with words, and knew how to bargain with everyone. He always defied the odds of his doctors and nurses. The doctors and nurses from St. Judes Children's Hospital and St. Francis Children's Hospital were always absolutely amazing, including all of the hospice nurses, he met. Cameron had a way of making sure you remembered him no matter what. During the last few weeks of Cameron's battle, he was surrounded by family and friends who loved him. He made it known that they would never be alone. He set the standard high, and fought to the very end. He is the definition of strength. Cameron knew how much he was loved, but also let everyone know of his own way how much he loved them. He always said, "be careful, I love you", anytime you left to run an errand, or go to work. He made sure his promises were kept. His voice and spirit will live on in his family and in the legacy he leaves behind.
