Nevaeh Dives Into A Seriously Fun Summer
At SeriousFun camps, children living with serious illnesses get to experience many firsts. For eight-year-old Nevaeh, who attended Transplant Week at North Star Reach in Michigan, it was her first time to ever swim in a lake. On the first day of camp, when she first touched the water, she was timid and scared. Two days later, she was running full force into the lake toward her new friends with an exuberant grin on her face. Your support gives children like Nevaeh the opportunity to take healthy risks in a safe and nurturing environment.
