BENEFITING: CHILDREN AND ARTHRITIS
EVENT DATE: Jun 17, 2016
I'm asking all of my friends and family to consider making a donation to Camp Jambalaya Jubilee. This camp is sponsored by Children & Arthritis, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Shreveport, LA. The camp is held annually at Centenary College and is for any child aged 18 and under who has been diagnosed with arthritis or another rheumatic illness. The siblings and family also attend. Generous sponsors are needed to keep the cost low for the families. This is my aunt's testimony regarding Jambalaya Jubilee: "The camp was a tremendous help for my son, Jonah. Upon his return home from camp, he self-administered his painful Enbrel injection without any additional encouragement from me. Being around the other kids and listening to their struggles and methods of coping had given him the courage he needed to do this. The camp is also a great source of support for the parents who have the opportunity to meet with doctors and other parents." Unfortunately, this year the camp is under-funded and in need of extra support. If you can give even a little, please know that it is appreciated! Thank you so much!
