B.A.S.E. Camp Childrens Cancer Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3. Our mission is to provide a year round base of support for children and families facing the challenge of living with Cancer. Unlike once in a life time organizations B.A.S.E. Camp makes a difference in childrens lives on a regular Basis. Our programs focus on "being normal," participating in peer groups that children who are not affected by life challenging illnesses take for granted. B.A.S.E. Camp Childrens Cancer Foundation has recently affiliated with The Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation and its 43,000 members.
B.A.S.E. Camp has a two fold meaning; First it is an acronym for Believe, Achieve, Support, and Educate; Second it symbolizes the encampment that is set up at the base of a mountain that is about to be climbed. We feel that Cancer, AIDS/HIV, Sickle Cell Anemia, Hemophilia and other rare/orphan hematology diseases are just such mountains in childrens lives. Our members are patients, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters.
