QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Project: Cameron’s Story all started in 2009, when Queensbury resident Sara Quartiers lost her 8-month-old son, Cameron, after he was born 16 weeks early.

That has lead Quartiers to her front and back yard this weekend for the 12th annual yard sale supporting Project: Cameron’s Story.
The goal is to raise around $2,000 or more this weekend, which will go right towards getting children’s books out to 15 hospitals in New York state, where families can read to their children in hospital care.

The sale runs all day on Friday and Saturday.
