Our Story...

As some of you know, Ben was only 3 ½ when he was dx with a rare form of brain cancer in 2004. His treatment was tough, and he remained in house at Sick Kids for almost 11 months. Through that time, OOCH was always there when we needed it, even when I didn’t know that’s what we needed.

When Ben turned 6, he was eligible to go away for Res Camp for 2 weeks. It was very hard to let him go, but knowing his doctors, nurses, and OOCH staff and volunteers were going to be with him, I knew I could not hold him back. 

This past December Ben turned 20 and remains cancer-free. This past year, Ben was hoping to be able to volunteer at Camp OOCH, but because of the pandemic, that was not possible. I cannot imagine how hard it has been for all the campers to miss going to Camp this past year, but because OOCH is so incredible, they have found ways to bring camp to the campers.  

This needs to continue.   Due to the pandemic fundraising is way down.   Ben knows firsthand what OOCH can do for you, and how it can change your life. Through fundraising like this, it makes it possible for so many kids to enjoy the experience OOCH offers, one myself and my family can never repay.

Please make 2021 the best year yet, and donate whatever you can!

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 our fundraising efforts—your gift will make a world of difference!

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