Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

The kids had a great time at Camp Angel. Although they all have an immediate family with cancer their weekend is about having fun. Getting away from it and spending time in the rocking chair room, spending time getting to know some animals and rock climbing.

They also got to ride in a horse drawn sleigh and on dog sleds! Needless to say they all went home exhausted. It’s one of the best things Angel on My Shoulder does. And it’s free for them to come!

  10. I got tearful, I know it is a happy place but yet I felt such a deep sorrow. We are in the stages of the unknown for two bestfriends with brain cancer. We have lost so many...I can't help but mourn. Fighting the Beast !
    Strength and prayers for all those families...Love TJ
