Review for Okizu, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Though our son passed away before he could get to know Okizu, our other children have greatly benefited from Okizu through SIBS Camp and the whole family has cherished Family Camp every year. Being able to be with other families that truly know and understand what our family is/has been going through. They are all very wonderful people that truly care about all the kids and parents they come into contact with. I can't even begin to put into words how Okizu has impacted our family in a positive manner. I mean after losing a child to cancer, who really understands? No one in my immediate circle of family and friends really understand and so I was actually a bit skeptical about going to Family Camp. But after going there and hearing the other families' stories and telling my story, you get that connection of true understanding. The staff are similar, they truly empathize and many know what it's like to have cancer. I can't say enough good things about Okizu.
