THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with Pre B-A.L.L. in January 2008, when I was four years old. I did not like being sick. I didn’t get to play outside and do things like the other kids. I didn’t like chemo because it made me dizzy and I would get sick, but then I could eat a lot when steroids kicked in and I got to have whatever I wanted. I did not like spinal taps or being poked for shots and blood. One of my nurses was Darryl. Every time I would go for my appointments, Darryl was there to weigh me and be by my side for spinal taps. He would always tell me I would be ok once it was all done. He was my nurse and he is my friend.

Darryl was also a counselor at One Step at a Time summer camp. When I was old enough and well enough to go to camp that was in 2010. My group was the standard group at One Step at a Time. Going to camp helped me to feel better and feel like I could do things like the kids that weren’t sick. I was with other kids that understood me and knew that it was ok to be sick without explaining it. It was fun and everyone at camp got to swim and have fun and go on hikes and fish and we even got to have paint wars. Going to camp made me feel good and I like to go. I look forward to the end of the school year because that is when I get to go to camp. It is the best way to start out summer vacation and I get to see all my camp friends too. One Step at a Time has made me feel good, excited and happy and I get to go every year. Hopefully I will get to be a camp counselor at One Step at a Time one day. It made my life easier and fun when I was sick and I am thankful that it exists for me and many other kids.
