Issues: Children & Youth, Health, Cancer

Location: 140 N Orlando Ave Ste 120 Winter Park FL 32789 USA

Mission: B.A.S.E. Camp has a two-fold meaning: First it is an acronym for Believe, Achieve, Support, & Educate. Second, it symbolizes the encampment that is set up at the base of a mountain that is about to be climbed. We feel that AIDS/HIV, cancer, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other rare/orphan hematology diseases are just such mountains in children's lives. Our members are patients, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters. We provide programs on an ongoing basis, at no charge to our familes.

The small staff of BASE Camp work around the clock to support and bring joy to the lives of children afflicted with cancer and their families. They are the most caring,devoted, tireless workers on earth. They do more actual good with limited resources than can be believed. Terri and Jackie sponsor numerous events for the kids, bring food to children in multiple hoppitals, and have created a unique enviornment where kids with cancer can have wonderful, affirming experiences with their peers. Truly Amazing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

numerous community events that truly enrich the lives of kids with cancer and their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find more sources of funding, because they are truly deserving

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their willingness to do anything at all to meet a child's specific need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

simply amazing!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be a model for children's cancer support groups.

Ways to make it better...

I could devote more time to supporting their cause

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

an unlimited desire to help kids with cancer coupled with limited resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am honored to occasionally be a very small part of the effort.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
