42 “Our five-year old son was diagnosed with a rare and sometimes fatal blood disease when he was two years old. After four years of chemotherapy, surgeries, infections, and everything else that goes along with this nightmare, we are no closer to a cure than day one. However, you have given us a week to heal. Greg met great friends, fished, went boating, and forgot about chemo for a while. My three-year-old daughter had a chance to be number one, and my husband and I laughed and cried with other parents in similar situations…” “As we face an uncertain future, we know that Camp Sunshine has made a huge difference in our lives, and we can only hope that it will always be here.” No family should be deprived of Camp Sunshine because they cannot afford the cost of travel. We must significantly increase our grants for transportation costs for needy families and want our donors to designate $60,000 in multiples of $1,500 (the typical round trip for a family of four). The help we give Camp Sunshine is why HOT exists. Look at the child in the picture above. He is having fun. But, when the week at camp ends, he and his parents will go back to the reality of dealing with his illness. Camp Sunshine’s Wish list includes: - $1,350 to fund a yoga program for one year - $5,000 for Golf Cart to transport individuals with mobility challenges around campus - $7,000 for a Stand-up Freezer and Fridge for the Food Line - $75,000 for Transportation (in multiples of $1,500) No suffering child or their family should ever not be able to go to Camp Sunshine because they can’t afford to get to camp. NEVER EVER.
