In 2011 Cameron Gellman was still in Wydown Middle School when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He was 13 years old at the time, and less than a year later, he was diagnosed with celiac disease. Celiac disease is an immune disease, which makes a person gluten intolerant because it damages their intestines. But despite the two difficult diagnoses, Cameron never let his spirit down; he had a great family and a loving brother to take care of him.
After a few days of being diagnoses with type 1 diabetes, Cameron told his mother he wanted to be involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The foundation is working on finding a cure for the condition and also helps kids with the disease. Cameron is a National Youth Ambassador with the foundation, and he is also a mentor who wants to help educate people about the condition. He has also helped raise over $10,000 in donations for the foundation.
Before Cameron was famous, he was a basketball player, and after getting his arm injured, the actor turned to music and acting, which was his calling all along. The actor was a freshman when he started to attend acting schools, and all through high school, he was training in Warner Laughlin Studios and John Rosenfeld Studios. Winning awards for being the best freshman actor and soon Hollywood came calling as the actor started his professional career at the age of 17.

Cameron Gellman is active on Instagram; the actor does not have a lot of followers on the image-sharing site (he has over 3,500 followers). The actor posts from time to time on his page, with pictures of his dog, upcoming shows, and friends, dominating the grid. There is also a picture of him as a young boy, with his older brother on his Instagram page.
The thing we were not able to find there was a presence of a special someone. There were no pictures of Cameron Gellman with a romantic partner or a girlfriend on his Instagram. He seems to be close with his Heathers co-star Brett Cooper, but she insists they are only good friends and nothing more. All signs do point to Cameron being single at the moment and focused on his acting career as well as volunteering for JDRF.
