What is Special Love?
Since its inception in 1983, Special Love has provided a strong, nurturing environment for children with cancer and their families through its free camps and getaway weekends, emergency financial assistance, and educational scholarships for young adults who have beaten cancer.
Camp Fantastic, their cornerstone program for 7-17 year-old cancer patients, is considered a protocol within the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Each year, Special Love serves hundreds of children, teens, young adults, and their families.
