Summer camp is a chance for new experiences, freedom, fun. My kids said going to camp has been some of the best times of their lives. For kids with cancer, camp is extra special. It's an escape from their reality; a chance to be with other kids who know exactly what they're going through.
Back in March, the National Office of the American Cancer Society announced it would no longer fund camps across the nation, including the local “Camp Goodtimes East.” The locally owned camp provides a medically supervised, week-long camp for children battling the effects of cancer.
