Team Marc - Outshine Childhood Cancer

My name is Marc Gonzalez and this will be my 8th year attending Camp Adventure, a camp run by KiDS NEED MoRE located on Shelter Island for kids and their siblings coping with cancer and life threatening illnesses. My first year of camp was in 2010, I attended camp with my sister, Michelle, who was truthfully not looking forward to being there because of her illness. My mother had told Michelle that I wouldn't be able to go if she didn't go as well, being the wonderful sister that she was she reluctantly went because she didn't want me to be disappointed. We both had a great time and made friends, some of which even lived in our town. Unfortunately Michelle relapsed and continued to battle her relentless, rare form of childhood cancer. Every summer I have the privilege of going to camp with my friends. I look forward to that one week each summer, being able to spend time with people who understand and have lived through the same experiences I did, with a sibling or themselves fighting their own battle. Camp is a place where we let go and escape the reality of battling cancer and enjoy being with each other and having fun as a camp family. My camp family was always there for me no matter what was happening and they continue to show support and understand. In the summer of 2014, my beautiful, courageous, brave sister Michelle lost her more than 5 year battle to childhood cancer. I go gold to honor my sister and to raise awareness for childhood cancer so nobody has to feel the pain of losing someone they love to this horrible disease. I help support KiDS NEED MoRE because of the amazing support they have shown me over the years. Donate today to help give children dealing with these life threatening illnesses MoRE positive memories.
