After Cancer Diagnosis, Cameron Given 'Clean Bill'
Assoc. Athletic Director/Communications
BATON ROUGE – LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron told members of the media on Friday afternoon that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but that he’s been given a “clean bill of health”.
Cameron, along with head coach Les Miles, meet with the media to address his prostate cancer diagnosis.
“I appreciate the concern,” Cameron said. “I don’t necessarily know what’s out there, but I would like to address one thing; I’m fine. My health is good. I’ve been given a clean bill of health. I’ve been involved (with the team) throughout the entire training camp. I’m looking forward to this season and all the goals (we have set).
“One thing I would like to say is that the last few weeks with the support from this program, our players, Coach Miles and our staff, I haven’t experienced anything quite like it. It’s been awesome for my family and me. That’s been a big part of how this thing has progressed in such a positive way. Les communicated with our staff and (director of athletics) Joe Alleva, and our staff did a tremendous job, the offensive and defensive staff for that matter.
“I’m good. I’m fine. I just want you to know that. I appreciate the concern. On behalf of my family, I want to thank everybody for their support. We are looking forward to the season, and we will be moving on from here.”
Cameron did acknowledge that he’s already undergone treatment for prostate cancer.
“I’ve been through the treatment, and I’ve been given a clean bill of health,” Cameron said. “I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which is something that is very common among men of certain ages in our country. I’ve been given a clean bill of health. Pathology reports are 100 percent. I’m locked, loaded and ready to go.”
Cameron and the rest of the Tigers open the 2015 season on Saturday, Sept. 5 against McNeese State in Tiger Stadium.
