People ask why we would plunge into the icy ocean in February...we think of Katie, our hero, a Leukemia survivor, and how chemo is hell, and ALL the heroes battling life threatening illnesses RIGHT NOW. And we think of all the kids who lost their battle. Then we think of Camp Sunshine and how it feels to walk through the yellow doors, and the volunteers in the yellow shirts who welcome us with open arms and make us feel like everything is going to be ok, even just for a little while.
In Katie's words:
"Camp Sunshine is the place where we became happy and hopeful again. From the second my family arrives to the minute we leave we have smiles on our faces and never stop laughing and having a good time. It's a place where you can talk about your problems but have fun and smile while doing so. You can take a deep breath and fall if you need to and know that someone is there to catch you"
