Fantastic Friends Weekend

June 28-30, 2019

Fantastic Friends Weekend. Six girls together, hugging, happy and smiling.

It’s not surprising that a best friend is one of the most important members of a teenager’s community of support, especially when that teen is dealing with the trauma of a cancer diagnosis. For 13- to 17-year-old cancer patients, Special Love offers Fantastic Friends Weekend, giving teen patients a chance to include their best friends in their camp experience. By helping friends understand the cancer ordeal, Special Love strengthens the support system that teens with cancer rely on year-round.
