Cameron “Cam” Carter was 14 years old, and the sweetest, brightest light to everyone who came into her presence. Cameron joined the Virginia Elite 14’s team for the 2012 season, her first experience with competitive volleyball and she approached it with passion and vigor. She was a very talented young setter who truly LOVED the sport. Along with volleyball, Cam enjoyed basketball, lacrosse, soccer, piano, cello and poetry! The biggest part of Cameron was her heart and her greatest and most prominent attribute was her love of everyone. Cameron made everyone a friend and her purpose was to make everyone’s life a little better and brighter when they met her and she did just that!
Cameron was a Type 1 diabetic. She had just finished a fun, competitive weekend at the Capitol Hill Classic and on the night of February 20th 2012, she tested her blood sugar like always and it was perfectly fine. Tragically, Cam never woke up the next morning. She passed in her sleep due to complications from her diabetes.
The coaches, staff, players and teammates of Cam are committed to doing all we can so other teams, families and friends don’t have to endure such a tragedy. Please turn this card over for ways you can help VA Elite fight juvenile diabetes.
