Gracie

When Gracie was four, her then one-year-old brother Bentley was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Her mom says Gracie didn’t understand why her parents were away from home so much while Bentley was being treated. One distraction for the family has been Special Love’s family weekends. Their favorite is Octoberfest, where Gracie loves the cooking and crafts classes. “Camp just gives us time to relax,” Gracie’s mom says. “Every patient is different, but we learn so much from talking to other families.”

Kinley

Like many six-year-olds, Kinley was a fun-loving little girl when her family learned she had acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The treatment schedule was grueling, but Special Love camps have helped her family along their cancer journey. Camp Fantastic is Kinley’s favorite. “There’s strength in numbers,” Kinley’s mom says. “It’s the best feeling to have people who support and understand each other in a way no one else can.” Today, two years off treatment, Kinley enjoys ballet and is a straight-A student.

Lily

Thirteen-year-old Lily, complete with her signature pigtails, spends much of her spare time playing softball, practicing on the keyboard, and adjusting to teenage life. It’s not always easy. She recently lost her 17-year-old brother to cancer. To help heal, Lily and her family take advantage of the uplifting programs, camaraderie, and much-needed escape that Special Love’s weekend family camps bring. “There’s strength in numbers,” Kinley’s mom says. “It’s the best feeling to have people who support and understand each other in a way no one else can.” Today, two years off treatment, Kinley enjoys ballet and is a straight-A student.

Tara

Soon after Tara turned eight years old, she was diagnosed with diffuse astrocytoma, an inoperable brain tumor. Countless chemo treatments, one relapse, and three brain surgeries later, she’s now an active teenager, playing sports and going to concerts. Tara credits Special Love’s camps with helping her gain confidence as she battled pediatric cancer. At camp, she enjoys horse therapy classes and loves “having fun with my friends and roommates.”
