Last Thursday we returned to HCMC Burn Center for the annual Christmas Blessing. AT the beginning of the week we identify the patients in need, gather their “wish lists” and schedule elves to shop for each patient and their family. When you see what simple things people “want” and immediately understand there is a reason for the season.
As we prepare for our week at Camp RED, emotions run high. In the Twin Cities, we have been very successful to meet the needs of patients, but we wanted do more. Jake had always dreamed of the day we had the resources to provide a residential camp experience for patients and their families to travel north, get outdoors, come together, relax and unwind AND be encouraged and inspired.
