DIPG Awareness & #TeamCozzi

Camron’s Fight

On December 22, 2015 Camron Cozzi, a Bonney Lake lacrosse player, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a rare form of brain cancer.  The local lacrosse community and others around the state and country have stepped up in support.  

Team Cozzi Foundation was formed in honor of Camron Nicholas Cozzi.  Camron was diagnosed at the age of 15, 3 days before Christmas with a terminal pediatric brain cancer known as DIPG – Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.  Camron was given 2 months to live.  Through the efforts of his family, communities surrounding Camron’s hometown, the family was able to travel and seek treatment that would extend his life another 25 months.  

On March 10, 2018, Camron passed away on his 18th birthday.  Throughout Camron’s battle, he was educating and extending the awareness of DIPG and Pediatric brain cancer by giving of himself when and for as long as he could.

Camron’s parents, Paul and Cyndi Cozzi wish to continue to work towards a cure for the very rare pediatric brain cancer.  Both have worked with other families with the same diagnosis as well as those with other pediatric cancers.  Paul and Cyndi plan to continue their efforts with auction, sporting events, and merchandise to raise money for other families diagnosed as well as funding research in pediatric brain cancer.

No One Fights Alone.  Camron Cozzi & his family fought a valiant battle. They were able to seek out treatments that wouldn’t have been an option, without the dollars raised by all the phenomenal people who have helped emotionally and financially along the way.

Camron defied the odds, he was a warrior, now an angel. Camron passed on his 18th birthday, March 10th of 2018. Camron’s most fervent wish was to find a cure for DIPG. So that no child has to leave their parents. So no child would die from DIPG.

In an effort to raise funds the Bonney Lake lacrosse team has teamed up with Total Sports and Camron’s freind PJ Boogard to design a lacrosse shooter shirt, helmet and car decals so our fellow lacrosse players can show support for the Cozzi family.  All the proceeds from the sales will be used to support the family and DIPG reasearch through the Angel Wings Foundation.
