I was honored to join the Leadership Board for Aurora Day Camp last summer. I was even more humbled when they asked me to become Chair of the Board starting this summer! I’m thrilled to do so because I’m so moved by Aurora’s mission - we provide Georgia’s only full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, as well as year-round and in-hospital programs, free of charge. Please take a moment to watch the powerful video below.
Once again, we are fundraising through a virtual walk on June 13, which is the day before camp opens. Camp was virtual last summer, but it will be in person this year! In addition to the usual expenses of over 50 camp counselors, specialists and nurses - as well as free bus transportation for campers from 17+ counties - we will need to purchase PPE equipment to keep everyone safe this year.
This is where we need your help. Would you please make a tax-deductible donation? (You can also join my team, Mamas for Free Camp - let me know if you’re interested in that.)
60% of our campers are under age 10, and 30% are younger than 8. This gives these little fighters a precious opportunity to be normal kids and have fun.
Sorry this is late! Would anonymous donor still consider matching??? Super proud of you, Stace.

Aurora is so lucky to have such a tenacious mama bear in its corner. Unless touched, or should I say hammered, by this disease we just don’t know the depth of its ability to suck the joy out of lives. Bringing joy to children should be the purpose of every adult on earth. Imagine how much happier and healthier we all would be! Hugs. Love. Thank you.

We just lost a beautiful little girl to cancer named Indy Llew. She inspired so many with her journey. I am so glad that Aurora provides hope and joy and sunshine to families going through this. https://www.eonline.com/news/1276859/influencer-terah-jones-5-year-old-daughter-dies-after-cancer-battle
