Hello Family and Friends :)
The CAMP CARE 5K is coming up soon! September 10, 2016.
I'm starting a fundraising team, in hopes of raising money for this incredible organization.
I have been privileged enough to be apart of this organization since 2001.
My husband and I lost our fist son to cancer on December 18, 2003. Our son's name was Jacob, he was just two weeks shy of his 5th birthday when he lost his fight to cancer. Through Camp Care, Jacob was able to be around his friends that he made at the hospital, at fun actives throughout the year. Jacob suffered physically the majority of his cancer treatment , he was diagnosed with stage 3 Neuroblastoma at the age of 22 months.
I know that if Jacob would have lived, he would have been a camper too, he loved all of the CAMP CARE social events he was able to attend. I became a counselor for CAMP CARE in 2013.
My goal is to be available for CAMP CARE in some capacity, to honor my son. I know Jacob would want me to be there. If you can spare a few bucks for this organization that offers SO many fun activities as well as a week long camp experience at Lake Lure, NC - for kids ages 6-16 fighting and LIVING with cancer, I would really appreciate you!
