-014- By utilizing the community and outside resources your child can be a 'kid' outside of the hospital. Jasmin was diagnosed with cancer, Leukemia, as a child. She was apprehensive about participating in Camp Ronald Mcdonald, but when she attended, she made life long friendships with other pediatric oncology patients. Varying activities and onsite healthcare services with doctors and nurses make this free experience safer than a camp for healthy children. Camp Ronald McDonald has weeks specific to Spanish Speakers and also weeks dedicated to just the children versus the whole family. One of the beautiful parts of this camp is the degree of community it promotes; once a child/family has attended, they are still considered family and can take part in alumni events. Jasmin loved her time at camp so much she is now the Family Relations and Recruitment Coordinator.
