7-year old Cameron McCarthy is fighting cancer with the help of her community and Philadelphia Union goalkeeper, John McCarthy. Cameron and John met at the Du Point Children’s Hospital in Delaware last year.

The last 12 months has been tough for Cameron and her family going through 17 rounds of chemo therapy and 31 rounds of proton therapy at the University of Pennsylvania. Through the help of John and the Philadelphia Union and with the support of ‘Team Cameron’ on Facebook, Cameron continues to fight.

PHL17’s David Grzybowski tells us about this special bond between two great friends.
