[Camp] truly pulled our son out of a funk. He has a new energy on life after attending camp and is ready to fight again. We can’t thank you all enough for giving us that gift.
The little glint of joy that is created by virtue of that bonding, by that experience is indescribable, its memorable, its unforgettable. It’s hard to articulate if you’ve never seen it, but if you have seen it, it will move you beyond belief.
They are experienced with children with all levels of disease and they have the facilities to handle them...The entire camp is built for children with disabilities. This is a rough road and you cannot walk it alone. You have to have help.
