We are really excited that 22Q Texas will be hosting their annual family camp/retreat on Nov. 3-5, 2017 at Camp For All in Burton, TX. This will be our family's 3rd retreat and it is a major highlight for our family.
What makes this camp so special?
It gives our family the oppurtunity to meet many other family affected by 22Q, and helps us know that we are not alone. I love that Rachel gets this oppurtunity to meet other kids with 22Q and that the other kiddos get to meet siblings of 22Q kids.
What do we do at camp?
The kids participate in fun, challenging activities, building independence & confidence by doing things they thought were impossible. As parents Mark and I get educated by doctors and specialist to assist us in better taking care of Rachel. We also connect with other families who have proven to be a strong support system. We really bond together as a family and we always leave with renewed strength and hope.
But all of this can only happen with the loyal & generous support of friends like you.
Your donation in any amount can help. Please help us make this weekend a reality We recognize that when one person faces a challenge it affects their whole family. This retreat provides a safe environment for those with 22Q and the families who love them. The retreat regularly draws more than 100 attendees from Texas and beyond. Retreat expenses for 2017 are expected to exceed $20,000. Families like ours attend at little or no cost, with all meals, lodging & activities provided. This year families are being asked to pay $50 per person to attend the retreat. Meaning we need to raise $300 for our family to go and we have a goal to raise $350 (or more so that we might help another family be able to attend). Your donation today can make 22Q Texas family camp a reality for us! Thank you for supporting 22Q Texas and our family.
