OSWEGO, NY – An outpouring of donations have contributed to the family of Cammeo Lazzaro.
The Oswego City School District recently conducted a fundraiser for the Oswego High School senior who was seriously burned.
Cammeo remains in a Boston hospital burn unit.
Turquoise is CammeoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œI spoke with CammeoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s mother and she was extremely thankful for the tremendous outpouring from the community.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
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.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
Once again the Oswego community has bonded together to support families in need.
