Review for The Heart Connection, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One of the many blessings that came to our family in the difficult journey of our son's diagnosis of Ewing's Sarcoma at age 7 is the Heart Connection. The times that we spent together at Family Camps over the years were invaluable in many ways. We had fun and could actually relax in the unique company of families and staff who knew all about our struggles.

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

my son - his week at Oncology camp was the only time during treatment that he was comfortable enough to go bald-headed without his cap and wear short sleeves that showed his scar.

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

Meeting other cancer families.

Ways to make it better...

Sibling camp was always scheduled the very week before my son started school.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2007

Role:  Client Served & attended Family camp; son attended Oncology Camp; other son attended Sibling Camp.
