A Royal Dream Come True
The plan, drive 150 miles to see the Royals game. Cameron McGeorge and his mom were excited. It was going to be his first time at Kauffman Stadium. Cameron couldn't wait to get inside and see the sights and the action of a Major League game. For most fans a seat here in the front row is as good as it gets, but on this day Cameron got to walk on the field and cross to the other dugout.
"I passed my mom while walking Joey, we were kind of doing nascar," said Royal's fan Cameron McGeorge
That's awesome, he loves walking the field and being with his friends it was a neat opportunity for the kids," said Cameron's mother Carla McGeorge.
An opportunity that didn't seem possible five years ago.
"I had a 3 year-old that had cancer and we had to drive back and forth to St. Louis every week for Chemo," said Carla McGeorge.
Then a friend told them about the Mid-Misouri Dream Factory. This let them meet families in similar situations, and making friends came easy. That's how Cameron became buddies with Joey.
He's excited to do anything with the Dream Factory and we're always their to help," said
And help they did, thanks to Cameron's craftsmanship. He and his model Corvette raised $250 for the Dream Factory charity auction. Now, Cameron and his mom have something to lean on.
"The Dream Factory family is wonderful, even if there's a family that hasn't gone through the same thing you have they are understanding and there to lend an ear and a shoulder to cry on," said Carla McGeorge.
On this day they didn't need a shoulder to cry on as they saw the Royals win, and had a dream filled day. Cameron's cancer has been in remission for five years.
