A Summer Camp Love Story That Is Also Saving Lives
A SeriousFun Children’s Network camp program makes a lifelong impression on hundreds of children! The global network, created by actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman, caters to children with serious illnesses. Best of all, it is free! This is a great chance for kids to be kids and not have to worry about their illnesses. The growing network of camps became nurturing homes away from home where campers could escape the fear and isolation of their conditions.
Chris Woll was diagnosed with cancer when he was 7-years-old. His oncologist recommended that Chris try out a SeriousFun Children’s Network camp. But this wasn’t just a one summer event— Chris fell in love with the experience and it ultimately shaped his life. He became a camp counselor, met a camper who later became his wife and now is on his way to help children for the rest of his life as a pediatrician.
