Kids with cancer need more than chemotherapy. They need fun and they need friendship. More than anything, they need the chance to be a kid.
Kids with cancer are often in the hospital for days that add up to weeks, that add up to months. They miss out on the simple pleasures of recess, school and play. They miss out on so many experiences. That's where Camp Ooch comes in. Giving a kid with cancer the life-changing experience of Camp Ooch is an immediate gift that transforms lives.
