From his sister Lindsay...

Many of you may have heard that Cam is in critical condition and fighting for his life hour by hour. He’s extremely weak and has been a bit delirious the last couple of days, but has continued to hold on…Yesterday and night was extremely scary and we didn’t know if he’s was going to make it or not. His biliruben has only been climbing for the last 3 weeks and therefore has taken every ounce of energy from him that he can hardly even talk.Although we’re not even close to out of the dark I wanted to share with all of you that because of the many prayers, thoughts, support and help that have been in his and my family’s behalf that his biliruben has come down 3 points since yesterday and a few other markers we look for have become healthier today. This is truly a miracle and nothing else. Thanks for all your support, and continuous curiosity on how Cam’s doing. I don’t mind talking about it, so feel free to ask details anytime. L,L

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you all for your earnest prayers and action in behalf of Cam particularly these last couple of days. Cam’s been is in an extremely dangerous part of his journey with his liver in deep distress. His GJ tube (feeding tube into his stomach) also tore away. We had that replaced this morning. The GI doctor who has been helping Cam since his diagnosis said after the new tube was placed… “by the grace of God the new tube was placed and fasten securely with even a deeper penetration of the J tube into his small intestine…”

Cam was then ushered to Radiology to see once again if there was any blockages of the liver drainage system that could be unobstructed. The Interventional Radiologist was able to place a larger catheter into Cam that created a higher volume of drainage from his hepatic biliary drainage system.

We now hope and pray that the bilirubin will start to move in a positive direction. Today the bilirubin was the same as it was on Wed….big blessing…it could have jumped higher! Other liver markers improved (Alk Phos, ALT, AST, Albumin, etc.) We now prayerfully and humble plead with the Master Physician that the bilirubin will follow the other markers in a positive direction.

Thank you all for supporting Cam and us in this extraordinary journey.

With Love and Apperception,


Dave, Paula, Cam and Family

Dear Family and Friends,

Cam’s liver output called “bilirubin” is 20 times what normal is. We need a miracle to relieve him of this poison that is being held up in his liver. It needs to be begin to subside today. We need all your collective prayers and support in Cam’s behalf. We believe that the Lord’s touch can heal all ailments completely at anytime.

Thank you in advance.

With love and appreciation,

Dave, Paula, Cam and Family

Latest update on Cameron Williams, received Wednesday, January 16th:

Dear Family and Friends,

After the last update Cam received some additional challenges. He’s been in the hospital 5 times in the last 8 days. He’s been blessed to have an additional catheter placed into his liver to allow the other part of his liver to receive relief that the first catheter was not relieving. All the other times at the hospital had to do with a variety of issues, bless his heart, I will spare you the details. It seems that the Lord’s plan for Cam’s journey must have additional challenges. Each time Cam gets knocked down, some believing he cannot rise, he does. He struggles to stand and then puts one foot in front of the other.

The main challenges the last couple of weeks have to do with his liver functions. Cam’s liver has been full of debris (bilirubin) yet his liver functions have remained fairly strong with some of the most important liver indicators spiking up. Cam became very juntas a little over a week ago, so all hands have been on deck and around the clock work to help his liver become relieved. We gathered as a family last Saturday in the hospital with Cam knowing how serious the challenge was, yet as we prayed and talked and after Cam received a priesthood blessing, we all felt calm. We didn’t have any answers nor where there western medicine options available. Cam was also hit with a major infection again in right lung.

Today Cam received a mighty miracle from the Master Physician who with His touch granted Cam some relief of his liver debris and his blood results have confirmed this. Truly a miracle has been performed once again for Cam.

Cam “Iron Will”iams’ has covered a great part of his journey which has been formidable. He has, I’m quite sure, many more serious obstacles that he will face on his journey. He has been sustained by the love and support of family and friends. He is no doubt being carried by our Savior, who by the touch of his finger can heal Cam completely. We have faith that He will.

Thanks to all of you for your quiet support, love, acts of kindness in our behalf. We wouldn’t wish this upon anyone and yet we wouldn’t trade the precious, sacred opportunity to serve and support Cam.

Please know that we love and appreciate each and everyone of you more than you know. We look forward to the time we can take pause and express to each of you how we feel.

With deep appreciation,

Dave, Paula, Cam and Family
Ciao tutti,

We were gone for the holidays, spending Christmas in New Zealand with my mothers family and then New Years with my fathers family! It was wonderful seeing family and friends and taking 3 of our children (Ashley, Benjamin and Chelsea) to the land of my birth. They loved it and enjoyed meeting family. Ashley was amazed at how many family we have there! One nice thing is that they are just leaving spring with summer just around the corner, which was great. On our way home we spent a few days with friends (President & Sister Ardern) in Fiji, nice and hot there! Our friends, we'll he's the Mission President of the Fiji Suva Mission. Visiting with them brought back a lot of feelings and thoughts of our mission that we served with you! We are now home, so sorry for any of you who have written over the past little while! We hope you had a wonderful holiday time and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!!

Sorella Julie Pacini (Presidente, too)
