My Story...

What a crazy year it has been. We continue to support kids affected by childhood cancer through virtual programs and our staff have just recently gone back to SickKids and McMaster hospital to brighten the days of those kids going through treatment during these crazy covid times.

Covid limits the support that these families have from family and friends. So many grandparents are missing hugging their grandkids, something felt more deeply in those families dealing with cancer.

We are doing what we can to support these families now and as we slowly get back to life as we knew it. 

Description

A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. 

For affected kids and families, it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer. Camp Ooch offers a hopeful journey, where kids with cancer can just be kids, and families connect with a community of strength and support when they need it the most. 

They are much more than a summer camp—they offer the social cure for childhood cancer. Their camp-inspired programs deliver fun, friendship, and community to 1,900 kids and 745 families year-round, all across Ontario. As a response to COVID-19, virtual camp and in-hospital programs continue to reach kids and families living in isolation, wherever they are.

Please consider making a donation to my fundraising efforts—your gift will make a world of difference!

Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. And so can you.
