THE STORY:

Jen Gallant wrote -

When Alayna was 5 years old, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and started a two year chemotherapy and radiation protocol. During this time our family was introduced to Camp Sunshine and it instantly became our "home away from home". Whenever we are there, we are surrounded by other families who's children also have cancer and truly understand the unique circumstances that surround having a child with this terrible disease.

Camp Sunshine is a beautiful respite center located along Sebago Lake in Casco, Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. While at Camp Sunshine families enjoy activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, mini-golf, rock wall, obstacle course, volleyball, archery, boating and fishing. In the winter, there is also snowshoeing, ice skating, sledding and skiing. Medical and psycosocial support is on-site 24 hours a day. Families are fed three delicious meals daily. During the day, kids go off to "camp" with others in their age group while parents are afforded some one-on-one time. join other parents for activities or attend a daily support group. A week at Camp Sunshine is $2000 but is offered at no-cost to the families.

Today, Alayna is nine years old and is cancer-free. She does have some long-term side effects such as short-term memory loss but is overall, a happy, healthy girl who loves dancing, her family, friends and pets
