Meet the 8-year-old superhero who beat brain cancer at St. Jude

Posted: Updated:

Cameron Scott, 8, loves superheroes like Batman who use their brain and strong will in the place of superhuman powers.

He has emulated his favorite cartoon character in the last year by showing his own toughness and strength after being diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer.

"He's my hero,'' his father, Wendell Scott, told TODAY's Kerry Sanders.

Cameron is now remarkably cancer-free after being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a journey his family shared as part of TODAY's “Thanks and Giving” series that highlights the lifesaving work at St. Jude.

He and his family enjoyed a day in the Florida sunshine at the Legoland Florida Resort in Winter Haven this week following an emotional and grueling year.

The youngest of six children, Cameron's ordeal began last year when he fell down the stairs and started experiencing back pain.
