Turquoise is Cammeo’s favorite color and everyone donated a small amount of money to wear turquoise colored clothing to school.

Chalet Dewey-Flint, a coordinator of the event, noted, “I spoke with Cammeo’s mother and she was extremely thankful for the tremendous outpouring from the community.”

Dewey-Flint also noted, “According to her mother, Cammeo is still in a coma, but they have reduced the sedative so she opens her eyes one or two times a day. Her infection is gone and it is expected skin grafting will begin soon. They are hopeful of a full recovery in five or six months.”

Once again the Oswego community has bonded together to support families in need.
