In April of 2013, six days before my 14th birthday, I was diagnosed with leukemia. Throughout my entire first year of treatment, I was poked, prodded, and was generally miserable. Then, in the summer of 2014, I signed up for Camp Kids Are Kids, a city-based oncology camp that was the first of its kind. Though it was only a week long, CKAKC changed my life. I went through the rest of treatment a changed person, and I largely credit the people I met at CKAKC in helping me get to where I am today. Now, I'm lucky enough to use my experiences through treatment to speak for this cause and hopefully give kids like myself the same transformative experience camp gave me. The Little Steps of Hope Walk, which was started in 2017, is meant to raise funds so that children can attend Camp Kids Are Kids at no cost. Please consider donating; no amount is too big or too small!
