On Sunday, May 17, 2015 Cameron left home to play basketball with his friends at the local rec center. When he left home that day, he told his mom he would be back in an hour or so.
Cameron never returned home. After playing a game of basketball, he suffered sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) on the basketball court. Attempts to save Cameron through CPR and AED were unsuccessful. Cameron was healthy, athletic and very fit. His parents were not aware that Cameron had any type of heart condition. They later found out Cameron’s condition was genetic.
Cameron was a humble and kind person who would do anything he could to help someone. The Cameron Juniel Project is in honor of Cameron’s life. His parents want to help other families by bringing awareness to SCA. Prayerfully through awareness and prevention, families of young athletes will never have to experience the heartache and pain of losing a child to SCA. .
The Cameron Juniel Project is a non-profit organization that is committed to Cameron Juniel's legacy. Cameron Juniel was 20 years old when he died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest after playing a game of basketball. His parents and loved ones have united to form this project that bears his name to prevent other young people from succumbing to this condition.
The Cameron Juniel Project is dedicated to raising awareness and providing prevention information for sudden cardiac arrest. SCA is a quiet killer and it strikes without warning. SCA is preventable. Please join Cameron's parents, Alan and Sherri Juniel, and The Cameron Juniel Project in their fight to inform parents, teachers, school districts, communities, and anyone who will take the time to listen about SCA, Our children are worth it.
