Although we won't be going to camp this summer, we remember it as one of the best things that has happened for us during the last six years of Zach's Type 1 diabetes. It's a truly amazing, well organized, helpful experience for families and older children. We are deeply thankful for what we have learned there. The doctors, counselors, and experienced parents will be helping many families new to this difficult challenge this year. At the same time, the attendants will be having a great time with folks who understand the daily routine of it all-- and sleeping under the stars in one of the most beautiful places we've ever seen.
We hope to attend the family camp next year. This year we are happy to just support the camp financially by participating in this walk.
Thanks for adding to our donation--- if you have it to give.
With love and gratitude for our healthy boy and all of you,
Troy, Tina, Aaron, and Zachary
