Eight-year-old Cameron Wilson wanted to be able to keep in touch with best friend, Morgan Bishop so came up with a very entrepreneurial idea.
Morgan suffers with chronic eczema, asthma, food allergies and a life-threatening kidney condition.
Not being able to sleep for more than a few hours, Morgan is constantly irritated with his need to itch.
Morgan was taken into hospital on his sixth birthday so Cameron decided to gather all his own games and take them down to the local secondhand shop and trade them for a tablet.
Cameron's mum, Hayley told The Star of the pair's friendship:
"Morgan and Cameron would sit together at lunch at school and became friends.
“But then Morgan was off school for a couple of weeks. I was talking to Cameron about the reasons why and he said it would be nice to talk to Morgan while he was in hospital.
“We’d been talking about a new shop where you can trade DVDs and games and Cameron thought of Morgan straight away. We went through the collection and found 111 DVDs and 10 Wii games.”
“We got £90 and I put in the rest to buy the tablet. The manager at CEX in Epsom gave us a 10% discount too, which was nice. I’m really proud of Cameron. We’re not the wealthiest family and he didn’t think of himself – only Morgan.”
Touched by what her son's best friend had done, Morgan's mum Dana said:
“It was such a selfless thing to do, so kind for a boy so young. Cameron is just so thoughtful.”
Morgan is now able to play games while in hospital and most importantly, keep in touch with his best friend, Cameron.
