BENEFITING: SPECIAL LOVE INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2015
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am very involved in working with children who have cancer. I have been volunteering for over 25 years with the organization, Special Love. Special Love has created a community of support for children with cancer and their families through camps and year-round events. It is so important for these kids to know they are not alone in their fight. Because of Camp Fantastic, the week long sleep away camp for kids with cancer, these kids get to be KIDS again.... not a "cancer patient." They get to come to Camp and takes classes (ie. canoeing, crafts, drumming, Duct Tape design, sock monkeys, cooking, Glamour Institute), go to campfire, sing silly camp songs, and just HAVE FUN!! In a place where cancer is so "present," it is amazing how little it is discussed.... these kids are just normal campers! SO, I am shaving my head to raise money for this organization that I love so much! This place has given me so much over the years through learning to enjoy every little thing in life, becoming a better human being, teaching me to step out of my comfort zone, and to just be present in the moment.... to enjoy every single moment. Now, I want to give back, but I need your help!! Any little bit you can give will help a child with cancer be more than a set of testing results.... they can just be a kid again. So please, help if you can and pass along this information to anyone you might know who would like to be involved in my journey!!! You can join me at Octoberfest Weekend on 10/10/2015 and be a part of the fun!! Check out Special Love's website at www.specialove.org to see all the amazing things this organization does!!
