Inspirational People

survivorsSpecial Love’s mission is to provide “support services” to children with cancer and their families. Some of those services we can provide directly — scholarships, transportation to camp, etc — and some, perhaps the most important, require that we get out-of-the-way and let inspirational people share who they are with people who need inspiration.

YACing It Up

Splashdown!  YAC 2010YAC weekend 2011 kicks off in Jamestown on Friday.  This Fantastic weekend nurtures a community of support for young adult survivors and brings old camp friends back together again.  


Last year we went to a Splashdown waterpark (clearly a big hit with the YACer at right).  This year we figure we’ll cut out the middle man and head straight to the ocean.  Sunshine and sea air; that’s what it’s all about.

Introducing: The Special Love Blog

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Special Love is stepping into the wild world of social media with its very own blog; how far we have come from a neon-green xerox of the camp newspaper!


Due to COVID19 restrictions, we will not be having week long camps this year. That means we are bringing the show on the road! Your donation helps us bring exciting day-long events to children with cancer and their families this summer!
