Few people understand what it’s like to go through a catastrophic, life threatening illness let alone experience it through the eyes of a child. Our Milestone Celebrations encourage children affected with cancer who reach milestones in their treatment. These include final chemo treatments, hair growth, birthdays and the best: remission.
Our partners at BASE Camp make it possible to provide these quality of life celebrations.
Past Program Accomplishments
Here are some highlights of accomplishments since the program’s inception in 2010:
- Due to budget constraints in 2012, BASEcamp was going to have to stop these great events. Helpful Hands stepped in to fully fund them and 120 kids celebrated the joy of hearing the word REMISSION!
- In 2014, the number of celebrations so far is over 1,000!
