Review for THE HEART CONNECTION, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Children's Cancer Connection has been an incredible support system for our family as our son was going through treatments. We really love how the WHOLE family is included since cancer not only impacts the child going through it, but it really turns the whole household upside down! The family camp and summer camp were awesome! Last year was the first year for my kids and they were so excited to get Valentine notes from their counselors recently! It meant so much to them that they sent a note and they are excited to attend again this year to see their camp friends. Obviously, camp is only a part of what this organization does, but we are thankful that they were available to us during the treatments and continue to be part of our family during our continued followups. What a great resource and support system for the entire family.

Role:  Client Served & Parent of a child that had a brain tumor. My daughter and I also spent time volunteering before Christmas. They needed help stuffing Christmas cards and addressing envelopes.
