Our story

5 STRONG AMAZING YEARS CANCER FREE!!!! This year our baby Keaton will be celebrating 5 years cancer free. I cannot believe we have made it this far. It seems like yesterday, We woke up on May 9th 2013 and gave Keaton her last chemo pill. May 10th, 2013 was the first day Keaton celebrated being cancer free. We put on our gold outfits, laced up our sneakers and did our first ever Sporting life 10k. Every year we've been blessed to have our closest family and friends walking with us. We are blessed to watch not only Keaton, but Mika walking and running as healthy young girls. This year is especially special because 5 years is a big deal. Thank you to every single person who has ever supported us on this journey. Whether you have walked with us, donated to Camp Ooch, supported our family emotionally, financially or through spirit. whatever you did has helped us get to this point. OUR BABY IS CANCER FREE and you have been a part of that. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. forever!


Kids affected by childhood cancer still need the chance to just be kids!

A diagnosis of childhood cancer is a big, scary, sudden swerve in the road, changing life in an instant. 

For affected families, it can feel like everything is about cancer. Simple, childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams are left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school.

For over 35 years, Camp Ooch has offered a different path – the healing power of fun, friendship and self-confidence, and the joy of kids getting to just be kids! 

Often referred to as the social cure for cancer, Ooch provides programming at an overnight camp in Muskoka, at SickKids in Toronto, in specialized paediatric centres and in communities across Ontario. Camp Ooch is the only overnight camp in Canada to offer onsite IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions. 

Camp Ooch is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that relies exclusively on the generous support of fundraisers, corporate donors and individuals, like you.

Ooch changes the lives of over 1,800 kids affected by childhood cancer every year. However, almost 80% of kids with cancer in Ontario don’t have access to the wonders of camp. You can help change that.

Cancer changes a child's life.  So does Camp.  And so can you.

We still run for Ooch!
