Have a Blast!
 
One great way to meet other kids like you is to go to camp. You may be thinking, "Camp? Now?" It may sound crazy, but kids in all stages of cancer treatment can attend special camps designed to help you have fun and still get all the care you need. There you make new friends, do all kinds of activities from arts and crafts to sports, and never miss out on the care you need. For a list of camps call the Children's Oncology Camping Association International at 1-800-737-2667 or visit their web site at www.coca-intl.org. There are more camps listed, too, on the Candlelighter Childhood Cancer Foundation site.

There are also groups that will help your parents pay for a special vacation or other fun activity that they might not be able to afford. They are called "Wish" foundations, and you can find more about them in our a href="/Links/">Links area.
