Testimonials


"I don’t have the words right now to fully paint the picture of how our son has been lifted up by Kids Cancer Alliance. Thank you again for all you do to care for our kids, body and soul. There are many days where our son feels different or has to work so much harder at something that’s easy for most kids. KCA reminds us of how far he’s come, what an incredible battle he fought, and that he’s far from alone. "

"I remember how much fun our son had. Thanks for making the kids so happy and giving them normalcy."

- Linda, mother of past camper and current volunteer

"My son had Medulloblastoma at age 4, a baseball sized tumor. His complications were many and now he is a spunky 31-year-old young man. Kids Cancer Alliance was and will always be our saving grace. Indian Summer Camp made a huge difference in the attitude of our entire family. We will always be grateful to the spirit of life, which is born out of this adventure"

- Julie, mother of camper

"Thank you for all you do for the kids at KCA. Our daughter has attended for 3 years and she loves, loves, loves, the camp! WE are thankful as her parents to have a camp to send her to where I know her needs are met and she has the opportunity to do so many activities. We are also thankful that there are no costs as our finances are stretched with so many medical costs. Thank you again and please let the staff know we appreciate all their work, effort and commitment to these kids."

- Kay, mom of a very happy camper!

"I want to thank each and every one of you for making our daughter's time at camp a very wonderful memory for us. I keep going back looking at the pictures that I received and marvel at the smiles I see on our daughter's face while enduring so much pain. It was a very difficult decision to send her to camp but looking back we are so glad we did. She couldn't have received any better care than if she were in the hospital. Thank you to all the nurses, doctors and counselors for making this such a great time for her and provided such great memories in picture for me. Please know that I am very grateful for all that you did to make sure she had a good week and will love you guys forever"

"A Big Shout Out to the volunteers who give a WHOLE WEEK of their time to give the kids the best time ever! Another SHOUT OUT to the families who reluctantly let their child go for the week. NOW you know WHY it's so important to let them go, be kids, live outside of the shadow of cancer for a week! The experience is priceless!"
