Help send a kid to camp!
After two summers away, Camp Sunshine is back in the person! I'm so excited to be back home with my other camp volunteers and with the kids who make camp so special. Cancer makes a lot of kids immunocompromised, so this year's camp will still be a little different (and a little more careful) but it will be so good for these kids to be in-person, being kids, and being around others who understand how hard cancer is on a child.
Cancer affects all ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic groups and more than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year. Each year, about 15,700 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19 years of age are diagnosed with cancer. The survival rate is increasing, but these kids still need a place where they can grow with others who understand their story and learn from others who have a different background then they do.
Please help me raise money for these kids and for this amazing camp so that we can continue to give cancer patients and survivors a place to be a kid with other kids who understand.
