Camp Phoenix (8/30/17)
Dear friends,

Camp Phoenix is just around the corner! We already have 25 campers registered! The Camp Phoenix planning committee has been busy raising money and planning a fun filled weekend for our survivors and their friends and family.

This year we welcome Karen Roesser, clinical nurse specialist at the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center, as our guest speaker on cancer and genetics. Karen has dedicated her career to helping people fight cancer and she is an expert on genetics and genetic counselling. We are honored to have her present on Sunday.

We will have line dancing hosted by our very own campers, photo booth all weekend, star gazing with the Richmond Astronomical Society, swimming, paddle boating, fishing and canoeing on the lake, BINGO, camp fires, and lots of great food.

Can't wait to see you all there!. Check out our website www.campphoenixva.org to see some great pics, videos, and our agenda.

Best to you all,
Annette Graham
