I’m up for the challenge! This OBS Challenge is to write about an organization that is helping those with cancer. I chose a camp for boys and girls who are 6 to 18 years old and either have cancer or had cancer. It is called Indian Summer Camp. Their quotes are inspiring and they already have the days setup for next years camp. I love camping and I enjoy kids so I thought I kids camp that is local (kind of, 90 minutes or so away) would be great to spotlight for the OBS Challenge.

This is a great cause and sounds like a great program. I definitely agree that cancer sucks, BIG TIME!

My mother-in-law lost her battle with cancer after two years earlier this year and it just rips everything from you. I really feel bad for my wife as it has been a tough year for her. Maybe we should go camping in honor of her mother. She really, really enjoyed camping.

I think camping would be a great way to honor your mother-in-law Freddie. Sorry to hear about your families loss.

You are missed Uncle Keith. I know you’re driving a tractor and farming in heaven.
