In 2005 our son was diagnosed with ALL and our Social Worker gave us a list of non-profit camps that could help us through this difficult time. At the time our son was only 18-months old and we loved the fact that Camp Sunshine was a family camp. In June 2006 we first visited Camp Sunshine. It truly is like no place else; the beauty of the campus, the organization of their programs and staff, and the overwhelming warm and caring volunteers. It felt like our home away from home. We have been blessed to return to Camp Sunshine every year thereafter and our children are often in tears when leaving. We have been blessed to meet many families like ours, and have made lifelong frendships with volunteers, staffers and other families. We call Camp Sunshine our home away from home; A place where we can be ourself, a place where we understand each other without any need to "explain" ourselves, a place where we can relax and enjoy and watch our children be children and not children-with-cancer. As a parent, my favorite part of being at Camp Sunshine is participating in the Parent Group discussions, where we truly understand each other, we can laugh, cry and know that we have each other to always count on, because we are all a family, all a part of the Camp Sunshine Family.
