Hey Parents! I just wanted to share some info on our survivorship program for your loved ones working on transitioning out of cancer. It's a great program that brings survivors (and some fighters) together to share their stories, go through a learning experience together, and just have fun. Here's more info:[/B] http://www.athletes4cancer.org/about_programs.cfm
Camps are funded by private donations and funding from the John Wayne Cancer Foundation and Athletes for Cancer's annual fundraiser series, the Tenacity Games.
Here's the basics on the camps:
All camp expenses are covered for survivors once they get there. (Airfare not incl.)
People DO NOT have to be any sort of athlete to attend! This is a common misconception that keeps people from applying to camp! All levels of anything are welcome to attend!
This is an experience for anyone who wants to get past their cancer, the crap that comes with it, meet other survivors going through similar crap, & take steps to get on living. We do a lot of living at camp.
