Patients & Survivors

When one 11-year-old camper told us he liked Camp Fantastic better than Special Love’s other camps, we asked him why. “Because my parents don’t get to come with me,” he said smiling. We understand. Sometimes a child battling cancer needs the independence, a brief separation from worried, hands-on caregivers. Our camps for patients and survivors give young cancer patients that space, under the watchful eyes of our qualified counselors and staff. (And mom and dad get a well-deserved break, too.)
