I TELL YOU -- my co-workers and I at Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium have worked tirelessly over the past year to keep bringing the magic of camp to kids bedside and virtually despite all the lockdowns. We all got a taste of what it's like to be isolated during these lockdowns and can only begin to imagine how hard it's been on kids during this time. If this is one way to bring normalcy, play and happiness to a kid, I'm all for it. It's amazing what the power of play can do.
I'll be doing hikes with my dogs to show my support this month, show your support by donating today. :)
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.
