A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help South Coast rugby league player, Cameron Vazzoler.
Just two months ago, Vazzoler led the Bega Roosters to the Group 16 premiership and was named the competition’s player of the year.
But only a few weeks after the Roosters 24-14 win over the Tathra Sea Eagles, Vazzoler was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
The rugby league community has responded to the news, with Groups 7 and 16 setting up a Go Fund Me page to help him through the battle.
“The Group 7 & Group 16 Rugby League competitions have come together to help support Cam during this difficult time by setting up a Go Fund Me page to hopefully raise enough funds to support Cameron navigate the challenges GBS will present,” the Group 7 Facebook post stated.
“The Rugby League community prides itself on banding together to help support their own when times get tough.
“Cam has done so much for country rugby league and we ask for your help to support one of our own.
“Any help, support or donations you could afford at this time to get this great leader, role model, son, brother and loyal friend back to full health would be greatly appreciated.”
Vazzoler signed on as the Roosters Captain/Coach for the 2022 season in November 2021.
He is a NSW Open team Representative who played in the Under 21 Country team, was named Group 7 player of the year, and best on ground in the 2019 Group 7 Grand Final, helping Kiama break a 34 year premiership drought, before leading Bega to First Grade Premiership Glory in 2022, where he was named the competition’s player of the year.
