Auburn cheerleader uses platform to advocate for men’s health after beating cancer

AUBURN, Ala. (WBRC) – An Auburn cheerleader faced the fight of his life before his senior year: he was diagnosed with cancer.

Meet Auburn cheerleader Cameron Monistere.

“My name is Cameron Monistere. I attend Auburn University. This year I graduate in May 2023. My major is hospitality management with an emphasis in culinary science and a minor in business.

Being a senior in college has its stresses, but the roar of an Auburn game has always been Cameron’s escape.

“Cheerleading was always my escape from college,” Cameron said.

In between working as a private chef and cheerleading, Cameron realized he had a swollen lymph node, so he went for tests.

“On June 26, I got a call from UAB saying I was going to be approached before I heard anything from anyone else,” Cameron said.

Just moments later, Cameron was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“So for five seconds I was the most scared I’ve ever been in my entire life,” Cameron said.

But at the sixth second, something changed.

“And it was more like determination, motivation, how can I beat this. I’ll just add it to my schedule and we’ll figure it out from there.

He worked doctor’s appointments at UAB into his already busy schedule, never missing a practice or a game.

“Every Tuesday I would drive to Birmingham, I would have my treatment. As soon as I was done with that I would drive back.

Less than six months later, Cameron is now cancer-free, a feeling he describes as a breath of fresh air. Now he uses his experience to encourage others with busy lives to always take care of themselves first.

“I didn’t really have time to think about what was going on with me. And I think that’s the case with a lot of men in college and women too is that they do so much that they don’t take the time to physically to take care of mentally.

Cameron now knows if he can cheer on Auburn, continue to cook as a private chef, work for his degree and beat cancer, he can do it all.

“I thought if I could push through the next few years, or however long; I didn’t know how long it would take if I could push through this, life wasn’t going to be easy, but I will say that I could go through it confidently, knowing that I’m going to be fine,” Cameron said.
