This group does amazing work on a shoestring budget. They bring life-saving medical information to war-torn and developing areas of the world. Using telecommunications they link doctors to doctors and offer consulting services. It's a group that does an enormous amount of good with limited resources.

Okizu
November 8, 2012

A parent volunteer told us about camp Okizu when my son was first diagnosed with cancer. She said it was the best thing that had happened to her family since her daughter's diagnosis. I thought it a bit strange that she was talking to me about camp at that time and I forgot about it during those first five months in the hospital. But I remembered her words when we were finally home. I thought my daughter would like it but she said, "No way are you shipping me off to camp." I signed us up for family camp so she could see what it was like. Within the first hour she talked to another camper who said he couldn't get mad at his sister because she had cancer. Our son still felt rotten and was so weak he spent the nights in the lodge in a bed. No one batted an eye at his appearance and all the counselors helped us remember how to have fun and enjoy nature. In the midst of a traumatic experience Okizu offers shining beacons of hope, love and acceptance. There is life outside of the oncology ward. And it is beautiful.
