How your contribution helps:
Your contributiion can help send a chronically ill child to a special camp for children with life-threatening illnesses -- these children are not able to attend regular camp because of their illness. Your funds will also help send a child to a special venipuncture class. Children with hemophilia must inject themselves with needles to take their medication. This program teaches these children how to do this and to overcome their fear of needles.
