THE HEART CONNECTION
July 30, 2009
This is an amazing program I have had the pleasure of being involved with for over 20 years. As a sibling, I found a community who understood what my family was going through and other children who knew what it was like to be lost amidst the chaos of cancer treatment. Little did I know that 20 years later, many of my fellow campers would still be close and dear friends.
That is the wonderful part of the Heart Connection; it is not only an organization that helps during the crisis phases of cancer. It is a community that remains in contact and will see you through not only treatment, remission, treatment, or (sadly) loss - but also graduations, marriages, children and more.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the smiles of campers as they pull up for camp and the friendships that continue each year.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the friendships developed and support received.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic, energetic, devoted, and commited to the families.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Increase the number of families they are able to reach out to and extend the types of support they give to families at different stages of the cancer experience.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I have helped as a counselor and part of the directors team.
