On Monday, June 5, Any Baby Can hosted a sendoff for campers to Camp Grey Dove, a free week-long summer camp retreat in Killeen. These campers all have one thing in common: they have had a sibling diagnosed with cancer.
“When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it affects the entire family,” says Any Baby Can President and CEO Andy Miller. “Camp Grey Dove allows for a special, positive focus to be placed on the siblings of the child with cancer.”
Any Baby Can offers Camp Grey Dove to allow siblings the opportunity to process emotions and learn coping skills, while fostering fun and friendship in a summer camp setting. Camp Grey Dove is specifically designed for siblings of children who have been enrolled in the Any Baby Can Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Program, and are ages 7 – 14.
Camp Grey Dove is provided free-of-charge for families, many of whom are coping with medical bills and financial needs that would otherwise make camp unattainable.
