Cami was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma this past spring. But even with four rounds of treatments and having to shave her head, Cami has maintained a remarkable attitude.
The Leukemia and Lymphona Society wanted to reward Cami's bravery and make at least one day a little brighter. So together with the Grand Ole Opry and Darius Rucker - she got the ultimate VIP treatment.
Cami got her own dressing room - and Darius himself gave her a backstage tour.
When it was showtime, Cami got to hang out with Darius side stage. Then when Daruis started singing, she got to watch with her family from a special area back stage. Darius even mentioned Cami during his set.
Cami says she is used to hearing Darius during her cancer treatments. He's one of several artists loaded onto her ipod.
Getting to hear Rucker like this is a much different experience - one that's allowed this remarkable little girl to smile bigger than she had in a really long time.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The sounds of country music take over the City of Baton Rouge as the Bayou Country Superfest brings some of the genre's biggest names to LSU's Tiger Stadium for a Memorial Day holiday jamfest.
Headlining Saturday are Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Aaron Lewis, the former frontman for rock band Staind. The two-day festival concludes Sunday with performances by Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan and The Band Perry.
Festival producer Quint Davis says the talent and free fan fest held before the nightly concerts help to entice attendees. In its fourth year, the festival drew 75,000 people last year.
Visit Baton Rouge executive vice president Renee Areng says Superfest has encouraged people to travel to Baton Rouge on a traditionally sleepy weekend.
