Kametz had revealed in late April that he had been diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. He said at the time that he was taking a break from voiceover work and that other voice actors would replace him for current and ongoing roles. He also said at the time he was moving back to Pennsylvania to be with his family.

A GoFundMe campaign launched on his behalf a few days after his announcement. The campaign stated the money raised would go toward travel, insurance costs, medical bills not covered by insurance, and everyday life necessities. As of press time the campaign has earned US$175,126 of the US$150,000 goal. The organizers of the campaign added they will close the campaign on June 14, stating anything contributed that hadn’t already been used for Kametz’s treatments would go toward his celebration of life and funeral. Kametz’s family will hold a viewing on June 15 and a funeral on June 18.
