BENEFITING: Breast Cancer Options Inc
Children also suffer when a mother has breast cancer or they have lost their mom to the disease. Many suffer silently. Alyce began sleeping on the floor next to her moms' bed to keep an eye on her. Camp really helped her to deal with her fears and be able to talk about them. Breast Cancer Options is one of a few organizations providing direct help for these children. Camp Lighheart dates are August 23-26th at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY. Camp is free! Our staff is headed by a child psychotherapist and CSW's who help the kids feel comfortable and safe. It is our hope that each child will leave camp feeling less isolated, more supported and most importantly, that their hearts will indeed be lightened. Every dollar is very important to us and to the children. Don't forget to share this to help us reach our goal.
