BASE CAMP IS a heaven sent. I have a 9 year old daughter who has brain cancer and her tumor can not be removed. Base Camp has made this tragedy a easier road for my family. I owe them everything and I can not think them enough. I give them 100 stars for there love and support for families like my own.

I am twelve years old and was diagnosed with cancer three days before Christmas. Base Camp has been so much fun and so supportive to me. I recently attended my first formal dance- The Base Camp Prom and had the time of my life. It was amazing how hard all of them worked to give all of us a wonderful experience I will remember forever. The Staff and Volunteers of Base Camp are like angels sent to make a tough time more bearable.

We truly are blessed to be part of Basecamp. They were wonderful to my family while my son was in the hospital going thru chemo during the holiday season. The folks are Basecamp really care about the kids with cancer and their families. We are gotten to go to overnite sleepovers, a wonderful christmas party. Basecamp is very special to us because we are with other families that can relate to what our family member has gone through. I would highly recommend basecamp to any family with a child with cancer.. They provide lots of support and fun for the whole family...

since moving here to orlando base camp has beeen a great support for my family and I. When we were spending weeks in the hosp;ital they brought us food twice a week. this wa so nice since as we all know hospital food stinks. When we were released i have a daughter that takes many medications that make her hungry all the time. At this time I am unable to work and base camp has helped me feed and find support groups to help her. They have also been a great support for me. As a mother when your child is sick the world seems to just stop, but knowing you have people to talk to that understand and can help has been a great benifit to not going crazy. I have been with base camp only 6 months but anytime I need anything they help get it for me or find a way to help me with it. they are the best support a family who has no or little support can have. without base camp I don't know what I would have done on those long weeks in the hospital or the times I just needed a shoulder to cry oon and understand where i was coming from . THANK YOU BASE CAMP

I am a parent that felt like my world turn upside down when my child was diagnosed with Sickle Cell at 6 weeks old. I was blessed to become a family at Base Camp.My son is now 7 yrs old and living a great life through his ups and down days. The staff and volunteers are awesome at BASE CAMP. They provide services to children with all blood disorders. My children look forward to yearly events like Christmas in July, Christmas parties and a Host of other events. One thing I must say about Base Camp is that they really make every family feel special. They also go out of their way to support families in crisis going through cancer treatments and other blood disorders. This organization is one of the best Non- Profits in Central Florida.
