Review for Give Kids The World, Kissimmee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We were lucky enough to be granted a week at GKTW last year, for my son who was recovering from a bone marrow transplant. We visited from the Uk and had the most amazing week, surrounded by kind, gentle and understanding volunteers. We were given the chance to be together as a family, after three years of constant hospital stays. It was the start of our "new life" and the staff and especially the volunteers, made sure that we were made to feel special and above all, made to feel normal once more. The whole family were touched by he kindness and compassion of everyone at the vilage. We have since been back, as volunteers, in the hope that we can "pay forward" the kindness and love that we experienced. My son, now 16 (and fully recovered) has also volunteered as he feels he wants to give back. This is the most amazing place, where you get the chance to be able to relax, without constantly having to explain why your child is "different"... certainly a life changing experience for our family.
