Remember the previous news story titled A MESSAGE FROM RAYNA? If not, please read before proceeding. In regards to that story, Cameron's mother Susan has written a few words she would like you to read, basically words of 'thanks' to all of you. Her words are as follows: November 2001 Dear Sevendust & Coal Chamber Fans: Our family has long appreciated the mystical powers of music. Music has always filled our lives, but ever since Sevendust and Coal Chamber brought us under their wings, it has become a source of healing. Thanks to the huge hearts of Rayna and Morgan Rose, thousands of kind 'strangers' have entered our lives, aware of Cameron's fight for his life. Since Cameron's story was first told on the bands' websites, we have received hundreds of messages - many more than we can possibly answer, even though we'd like to respond to each and every one. Please know that we are reading all of your emails, cards and letters, and feeling the power of your thoughts. We have learned that Sevendust and Coal Chamber fans are remarkable people. We feel better about this world knowing that there are people like you out there who take time from your busy lives to communicate your love. Your amazing insights, prayers, positive thoughts, kind offers and sincerity fill us with inspiration and hope. Cameron has a boundless world of friends who are truly lifting him up. We haven't had the pleasure of meeting all of the Coal Chamber band members, but we appreciate their willingness to share Cameron's story. We have been fortunate enough to be able to hang around with the guys in Sevendust and can vouch for their genuine compassion and thoughtfulness. They have many gifts to share in addition to their musical talents. Their families and industry personnel reflect the band members' caring attitudes. Cameron was invited to be a part of Sevendust's "Praise" video shoot. It was an experience of a lifetime. When you watch "Praise" on MTV, right after Morgan sings "Afraid to open up your eyes," look for a kid in a black shirt (surrounded by pretty girls), with both arms raised in an ecstatic cheer (click HERE to see pic). That's Cameron! By the way, we've heard the song about a hundred times and we still like it! We wish Sevendust lots of good fortune - they deserve it. And best of luck to Coal Chamber, too. We want to thank all of you FANS out there for being the lifeblood of these talented bands. It's so cool... what music can do... how songs come from writers' hearts and minds, reach thousands of people and draw them into special circles, and then the circles makes ripples that touch more and more lives. During our difficult struggle, those circles have embraced us and we are very grateful. Peace & Love, Susan (Flip & Cameron) Gallion now give yourselves a well deserved pat on the back...
