What started out as a week-long respite at Camp Sunshine after our oldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer at age 2 1/2 has turned into a very big part of my family's life. After that first trip to Camp Sunshine we have returned every year for the past 16 yrs. as volunteers. Having experienced first-hand the impact of a life-threatening illness and the support we received at Camp Sunshine, we have become involved in fundraising so other families can experience this unique retreat.
Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to relax and be around other families going through similar challenges. At Camp Sunshine each session focuses on a different illness. Programs include housing, meals, on-site medical and psychosocial support, as well as many activities for the whole family. One week-long session at Camp Sunshine costs $2000 and is completely free to the families.
No donation is too small. Please join me by plunging with us or cheering us on. Thank you in advance for helping other families have a chance to experience the magic of Camp Sunshine.
