THE STORY:

My name is Christine and I live with a rare blood disorder called Sickle Beta Thalessemia. In 1988 I was given the gift of going to Paul Newmans The Hole In the Wall Gang Camp in the very first year it opened. Because of other peoples genorosity, I was blessed to be able to go to camp until 1996. Today I feel like I would love to pay it forward and be able to let other children with illness go to camp. This magical place has contributed so much to my life and has made me a better person. The vision Paul Newman started is one of pure magic. It costs $2500 to send a camper to this camp for a week. I got the opportunity and they will too, to learn to swim, boatibg and fishing, various art and crafts, ive even done scuba and gone up ina hot air balloon because of this camp. Ive met children from all over the world, with cancer, hiv, sickle cell and other diseases, who are given the opportunity to live as close to a normal life as possible and still be able to get the medication needed to continue living. So I ask you find it in your heart to help me send a sick child to camp, maybe we can.send more than one child next summer!! I thank youfor your contributions!
