Sunrise Day Camp

A little about Sunrise Day Camp, it “is the only dedicated full summer day camp in the nation for children with cancer and their siblings. It is a camp designed to meet the emotional, social, recreational and physical needs of these children while allowing them to enjoy the comforts and safety of their own homes at night…Best of all, Sunrise Day Camp is offered free of charge to all children being treated for cancer on a non-sectarian basis. By raising the needed funds from outside sources instead of charging the parents, we can help to alleviate some of the costs, and the related stress, that parents incur caring for a sick child throughout the year. Children who have received medical clearance from their physicians are welcome to attend.  Though 71/2 weeks of camp programming is offered, children may register and attend any and every day they feel well enough to do so.”

I had the privilege of photographing a fundraising even thrown by Lisa and Davis Sakhai.  They generously donated their home, fielded vendors and invited a ton of friends to have some fun and donate to this charitable cause.
