BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation, Inc.
June 29, 2010

I started at BASE Camp as a kid. I had leukemia at 15 years old. I went to their outtings and events. I had such a great time there. It helped me to get away from the reality of all the treatments and medicines I was going through. I remember going and seeing all these other kids younger and older dealing with the same issues i was. I remember being able to take my hat off because I was not the only one without hair due to the medicine we were taking. It gave me something to look forward to and helped with my confidence level. I am a volunteer there now. I know my main goal while im there, is to make each kid smile. We have so much fun between the pool, contests, games, and just pure fun. These kids have a chance to experience all the joy i did and would have missed, if it wasnt for BASE Camp. Thanks so much BASE Camp.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome. Terry and Cindy are absolute Dolls. The kids are a riot. They have fun there as if they were not sick at all.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

DO so much more. They would be an inspiration to all orginizations for kids. The volunteers have hearts of gold and think of nothing but for those kids. I believe they would create a daily camp instead of monthly. I believe that would be so awesome.
