Special Love has long been considered a “best kept secret.” We rely heavily on word-of-mouth for our campers and supporters, so one of the best ways you can help Special Love is to tell a friend! If you know a patient or family who can benefit from our services, tell ‘em about us! If you have a friend or family member who is in a position to donate or sponsor a program, tell ‘em about us! And if you happen to know someone in the media who might be willing to do a feature on Special Love, tell ‘em about us!
Contact info is listed under "Contact Us" above and links to donate or volunteer are listed under "How to Help." Don't forget to follow us on Facebook!
You can also show them our Camp Fantastic 2011 Slideshow or the testimonials below. Feel free to email us your own quote!
"Last week the people who make Camp Fantastic happen scored another win against cancer and all that it tries to destroy. All week long they beat cancer into the ground and brought forth smiles and laughter and unbeatable memories to draw on for forever. It's a gift that [my son] was privileged to be a part of." -Caleb's Mom
“I just wanted to drop a note to say what a wonderful camp you run! My son has not stopped talking about it, and he loved every minute of it. When we first talked about it I asked if he would go back, his response was, ‘I want to go back again, and again and again!’ Thank you so much for providing such a great camp for the kids.” - Joey's Mom
"This was our very first experience with Special Love and we were not disappointed. We loved the family atmosphere, the volunteers engaging tirelessly with the kids, and the sense that everyone is comfortable to be themselves. No pretending. Just lots of people working really hard at having fun." - Lucas and Maggie's Mom
"Please sign up our family for this wonderful weekend opportunity! My children all came back raving about BRASS camp. It was truly a life changing experience for all of them and they are excited to get together with the Special Love family again..." - Sarah, Hannah, Jack, Patrick, and Brendan's Mom
"Both of my kids come home from camp not only happy, tired and smelly, but also incredibly empowered from their time with the staff. I see in that first week home with both of them that the sharing and shaping given by the young men and women at camp is truly amazing and precious. I have come to love that first late-night talk, when they really open up and share those heart moments that occurred... I only wish those whose generosity allows this to happen could know that these camps not only provide a respite from 'Cancer World,' but they change lives and shape futures. I truly believe that with my whole heart. So, though completely inadequate, thank you." - Billy and Katie's Mom
