I have been a volunteer counselor at both the sibling and oncology camps, and the time there is very special for all involved. This a week where each camper gets to be the star, and it provides such a great support for the whole family. It is a week where miracles happen, and I am blessed to be a part of it.

I have been a volunteer for The Heart Connection for 4 years now, and every moment has been a blessing! I have met some amazing kids, and it has been a blessing to hear their stories! The way that these kids talk about camp says it all- camp means the world to these kids, both oncology campers and siblings. It is a place to get away- where they don't have to talk about things that are going on, but if they want to, everyone understands.

The Great!

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

the dedication people have to it. There are ways for people to stay involved long after they complete their camper years. People who are campers together stay friends forever, and many campers go on to be counselors.

I've been a volunteer for The Heart Connection for over ten years. The compassion that this organization has for children with cancer is genuine and amazing. And their acknoledgement that the needs of the siblings and families is equally important just goes to show how thoughtful and giving The Heart Connection is. It's truely an honor just to be a tiny, tiny part of the big differences that they make in the lives of so many.

The Great!

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

the faces of the children at camp (both oncology and sibling). There is no denying the life changing experiences that these kids have from just one week at The Heart Connection's summer camps.

There are no words to convey the amazing impact that The Heart Connection Children's Cancer Programs has on Iowa families affected by childhood cancer. As a volunteer I have been involved with The Heart Connection for the last two years, and the response from children and families is always positive. The organization provides recreation and support to families through their cancer battle and beyond. The Heart Connection is a family to every individual that they serve, and I am very proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization.

The Great!

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

getting to know the families involved with The Heart Connection and being able to help spread the word about all of the amazing things that The Heart Connection does for these families every day.

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

amazing. The staff and volunteers all share the same passion, and that is making life a little bit easier and a lot more fun for the entire family impacted by childhood cancer.

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

change the lives of many more families by providing more programming.

I have been a volunteer for 4 summers at their sibling and oncology camps. This organization goes above and beyond many other similar organizations in that they not only have programs for the child who has/had cancer, but also the child's siblings and parents as well. The organization's programs from the beloved summer camp to ClubHope to family events allow the oncology kids and their families to be introduced to others who can relate to their experiences and provide a support system for eachother as they face the ups and downs of the battle against cancer. Their programs remind the families and children that they aren't the only ones who have faced the challenges of cancer and that they don't have to face it alone. It is a shame that their aren't more organizations like the Heart Connection throughout the United States.

The Great!

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

the dedication and enthusiasm of the volunteers who were previously benefited from the Heart Connection's programs.

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

witnessing first hand the extraordinary impact they have on their clients.

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

110% dedicated to ensuring the goals of the Heart Connection were being met 100% of the time in every program they did. They were helpful, energetic and passionate about what they do.

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

reach out to any other families in Iowa who aren't currently being reached by their services. No family, or child with cancer would have to face their battle alone.

The Heart Connection Children’s Cancer Programs is truly a non-profit organization that changes the lives of children and their families that are affected by cancer. The numerous programs, outings, support and overall assistance that the organization provides truly makes a difference. I’ve nothing but amazing stories and memories of my time working with The Heart Connection and I’d recommend to anyone becoming associated with this organization, whether by volunteering, enjoying their programming or by becoming a “Heart Connection family.” To see the smiles and hear laughter of children who have been through much more than anyone could imagine, is the best medicine for the families and children that this organization touches.

The Great!

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

the families that participate, the volunteers who help, the employees who support the organzation, the community around us, and in the smiles of the children affected by pediatric cancer.

I was a counselor at Sibling Camp for the Heart Connection and I can honestly say I have never been part of such an amazing organization in my life. The people running this non-profit are some of the best in the world. They genuinely care for the kids and families who take part in their programs and dedicate their careers to helping these families make their battle with cancer a little easier.

The Great!

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

all of the children I've volunteered with. You can see it in their faces how relieved they are to not have to think about cancer for a few minutes. Every small thing The Heart Connection does makes a big difference for them.

I'm a volunteer with the Heart Connection and the work that is done and the attitudes of the volunteers and staff are what draw me back again and again. Everyone is so loving and genuine, and we all truly want to see the kids and their families have an amazing experience. The summer camps for the kids are amazing, but so are the regular get-togethers throughout the year!

extremely caring, kid-oriented, and tons of fun.
