Cameron’s wish comes true – Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

carAn eight-year-old Eastbourne boy’s dream of driving a Lamborghini has come true thanks to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Cameron Jones suffers from a complex form of the genetic disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, where collagen fails to form properly in the body that affects the skin, ligaments, and internal organs.

Despite spending a lot of time in hospital for treatment, physiotherapy and investigations, Cameron has developed a keen interest in fast cars and bikes, fuelled by a neighbour who has an old Harley Davidson.

When Cameron’s grandmother heard about Starlight and knowing how much Cameron had been through, she decided to put him forward for a wish.

Once Cameron knew he was eligible for a wish it didn’t take long for the fast car enthusiast to choose a ride in a very fast car like a Lamborghini.

Cameron’s Starlight wish was granted during the school summer holidays when he and his family travelled up to London the night before to spend the evening at the Park Plaza Hotel.
