A sizable portion of the Big Blue Nation is upset about an article Gary Parrish of CBS wrote recently, concerning Anthony davis and whether or not he was paid to attend UK. This all stems from a dumpster fire of an article published by the Chicago Sun Times, whose facts and reporting have been trashed and refuted repeatedly. Follow this link as the author breaks down point by point how ridiculous the Sun Times article was:
Over 100 children from across the state of Kentucky will arrive at Indian Summer Camp on Sunday, July 10th. But these aren’t your average kids. These are very special children who are either currently undergoing treatment for cancer or have survived a childhood cancer. Their childhoods have been filled with hospitals, chemotherapy, and surgeries, but for this one week of camp they will get to escape their disease and will have the opportunity to just be a kid again at Indian Summer Camp. Indian Summer Camp is provided at no cost to camper families, thanks to donations received year around.
Indian Summer Camp’s 30th annual week-long camp for kids with cancer will be full of sunshine, laughter, and most importantly: lots of fun. For many of these children, they get to experience things at camp that they would never otherwise have the opportunity to do. At Indian Summer Camp, the kids can scuba dive in the pool with the help of the Louisville Fire Department, enjoy a day of boating and tubing on Taylorsville Lake, and take part in many other outdoor activities such as hiking, archery, and fishing.
This year’s camp is themed “Welcome to Hollywood”, and there’s no doubt that with a record breaking number of campers expected, that this will be a week to remember. Many of Indian Summer Camp’s campers go through daily struggles. But Indian Summer Camp provides them a safe, fun place where they can relax, build friendships with other who have gone through similar circumstances, and most importantly: just have fun and not have to worry about their illness.
“Indian Summer Camp is one of the most magical places, where kids with cancer are comfortable being bald, having scars, and prosthetics because they know they won’t be made fun of and everyone else understands them”, says Indian Summer Camp Board president, Jon Dubins. During camp week, these campers from across the state will surely have one of the most memorable weeks of their lives. Each and every year, they leave looking forward to next year’s camp and with new found strength and encouragement to battle their childhood cancers.
Indian Summer Camp runs from July 10th-16th and is held at Camp Cedarmore in Baghdad, KY.
