Origin of Pain by Cameron Fox

In the winter of 2016, Saint Mary’s lost a shining star to a battle with depression. Cayley Fox was a dedicated varsity athlete, student, daughter, and friend. In commemoration of the anniversary of Cayley's passing, her brother and fellow alumni, Cameron Fox, wrote a book titled The Origin of Pain. This book covers his experiences with Cayley's death, mental health stigmas, and how he found his path forward. It provides readers with a different perspective on what emotional pain is, how it affects our lives, and proposes a path towards peace. In The Origin of Pain Cameron candidly shares the story of his own battles with grief, growth, and love.

20% of all proceeds from book purchases will be donated to the Cayley Fox Memorial Award here at Saint Mary's University. Please support and share to help current students at Saint Mary’s and to spread Cameron's story!

The Origin of Pain is available in both e-book and paperback versions on Amazon. Click here to purchase the e-book version and click here to purchase the paperback version to support Cameron Fox and the Cayley Fox Memorial Scholarship.
