“Last night I had the most realistic dream about Cameron yet,” he shared on Instagram. “He looked a lot like these blurry screenshots from a video. I told him that I thought he had died and I was ecstatic to see him. When I woke up I was devastated that it was only a dream.”
As fans know, the Disney star was only 20 years old when he died on July 6, 2019, after having a seizure in his sleep. He suffered from a medical condition called epilepsy, and his fans, costars, friends and family are still devastated over the tragic loss.
“The night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before. It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner,” his dad recalled on Good Morning America. “There was no indication that anything was wrong. I mean there was no way to know in hours my son would be dead. Like, it was just staggeringly crazy and horrible. And we were texting that night. We were texting back and forth up until 12:30 and somewhere between the last text he sent me and the morning, he was gone.”
“Cameron had his first seizure at 16 [years old],” his mom, Libby, explained. “He only ever had five seizures, and the fifth one is the one that he died from. If I ever thought that he could die from a seizure I would have never let him out of my sight.”
“He loved life. This is, for me, the hardest thing. He was in a place where he was truly happy. I mean, Cameron was always happy. Never a negative thing came out of his mouth. Never,” she continued.
Cameron will definitely never be forgotten.
