Would you believe that there are many blessings to be found in a cancer diagnosis?
One blessing that our family experienced was an amazing weekend at Camp Sunshine!
We look back...20 years later :) and remember it fondly.

In honor of #GivingTuesday, Camp Sunshine is asking our supporters to help us raise $25,000, which is enough to sponsor ten children with life-threatening illnesses and their families during one of our illness-specific sessions in 2016. All donations are appreciated and will go directly to support our programming.
Camp Sunshine provides respite, support, joy, and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their immediate families from around the world through the various stages of their journeys. The year-round program is free of charge to all families, and includes 24-hour onsite medical and psychosocial support. Camp Sunshine also provides bereavement sessions for families who have had a child pass away as a result of a life-threatening illness.
It is our goal to offer respite services to every family who applies to attend at no cost. As one of the only facilities in the United States that offers programming for every member of the immediate family, not just the ill child, Camp Sunshine continues to receive referrals from over 100 of the nation's top treatment centers. The availability and reach of Camp Sunshine's services are completely contingent upon the assistance of thousands of loyal volunteers, as well as the financial support of generous donoros - like yourself.
Join us in the weeks leading up to #GivingTuesday as we give thanks, give back and give hope this holiday season.
