BENEFITING: MERRY HEART CHILDREN'S CAMP
EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2016
As a kid growing up with a heart condition my greatest desire was to meet someone older than me who had a heart condition. That finally happened as an adult. I now have friends with heart conditions and some even have the same heart condition as me: tricuspid atresia. As of last summer Merry Heart Children's Camp makes it possible for children with heart conditions who live in Oregon, to go to a camp that accommodates their medical needs while giving them the "summer camp" experience. The best part? They get to meet other kids with heart conditions! They are taught about their conditions and empowered to ask questions and understand something about themselves that will always affect their daily life. I am incredibly excited to raise money for kids to go this camp, families are only asked to pay what is reasonable for their situation. It is about $500 for each child to go. I would greatly appreciate your support in sending kids to a camp that will change their lives and help them create a life long support system. Thank you for your support!
