Story

Jam for Cam was created in the fall of 2018 to establish a fundraiser to honor Cameron Fearon, a UGA student, who passed away from metastatic melanoma in August of that same year. He began his battle with melanoma in the eighth grade and fought for years until he eventually succumbed to the disease at the age of 19. He always kept quiet about his ailments and never once complained about his treatment or his pain. For these reasons and many more, we decided that Cameron’s name should never be forgotten. Thus, we created Jam for Cam. In short, Jam for Cam is a not-for-profit (501c-3 verified) charity that puts on a music festival every fall to honor Cameron’s life and bring together the Athens and UGA communities. Although the money raised does get put to good use through our donations to charities, this event is driven by our desire to bring people together to celebrate life through music.

Every year, a large portion of our donations are sent to the Melanoma Research Foundation and Camp Carolina. The Melanoma Research Foundation is a large advocate and supporter for melanoma awareness and treatment. Camp Carolina was selected as a recipient because Cameron grew up attending their camps and some of the best memories of his childhood life were made there. The money given to Camp Carolina is placed in a scholarship fund that helps to send children to Camp Carolina that otherwise would not be able to afford it financially. A third charity is selected on a year-by-year basis, and it is usually one that is more personal for the UGA and Athens communities.

This event is more than just raising money for cancer research and scholarships, we are committed to bringing a community together where every individual is held equal and can come together to celebrate life. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to read this and please consider donating to our cause or purchasing tickets to the event if you wish to join us.

Sincerely,

Jam for Cam
