Review for Okizu, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Okizu has been there for my Child after he was diagnose with high risk ALL Leukemia by providing him with the opportunity to attend camp even though he was under chemotherapy treatment. Okizu gave him a sense of independence, the opportunity to make friends and the chance to be able to share his feelings after a devastating diagnosis with kids just like him that knows what he is going thru. The doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers are fantastic, for the Children they are family, I still remembered his first time attending... He so was scare... When he came back the first thing he said to me " I can hardly wait for next year!!! Ever since ,my son looks forward to attend and join his new found friends. I have seen my child come back from camp more confident, independent, and mature. The last time he came from camp he said to me " Okizu has been the best thing that ever happen to me". Thank you Okizu!!!

Looking forward for this year camp!!!
Life changing experience for my son ALL survivor, 8 months after finishing with his treatment, he can hardly wait to share a week out of a year with his friends, doctors, nurses, volunteers. Okizu has provided him with independence, motivation and a sense of normalcy during his chemotherapy treatment, be able to reconnect with life long friendships and share feelings, bring hope as a survivor to other campers on treatment. Best therapy!!! Camp Okizu is amazing!!!
