A Message From Lisa Cazzola
Some facts about cancer: 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Cancer knows no ethnicity, socioeconomic class, or geography. Pediatric cancer is hugely underfunded, receiving only 4% of federal funding. Cancer is a pre-existing condition! Cancer is brutal on the patient, but also on the family. Effects of cancer can last long after the diagnosis. Cancer has affected my life. Cancer took my aunt away last year. Cancer brought me Camp Adventure, and many of the closest friends I have.
Some facts about Camp Adventure: Kids Need MoRE Camp Adventure is a one-week sleepaway camp that serves children coping with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, as well as their siblings. Kids can be at varying stages of their cancer or in remission. Not only is it a chance for kids to just feel like kids for a week (and not a patient!), but it's also a respite for the parents who have been in overdrive every other day of the year. We serve about 150 kids in the tri-state area at camp, and hundreds more at our programs throughout the year. The camp is offered at NO cost to the families, and the entire staff volunteers their time!
Some facts about me: I’ve been a volunteer with Camp Adventure for 12 years!! For the past 4 years, I’ve been a head counselor for the younger boys side of camp. Teddy even became a volunteer as a therapy dog this past year. I do this because I believe that community heals. It’s brought me fulfillment and joy and the most solid support network anyone could ever hope for.
This summer, Kids Need MoRE is allowing us to raise money individually through GiveEffect. It costs about $1000 for each camper and volunteer. This pays for the camp grounds, housing, food, activities, and of course, the magic (magic ain’t free!). My goal is to raise enough to send one child to Camp Adventure. Please help me do MoRE and donate any amount that you can!!
