Mission

BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation provides a year-round base of support for children and families who are facing the challenge of living with cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses.

What Does BASE Camp Mean?

BASE Camp has a double meaning. First, it is an acronym for Believe, Achieve, Support, and Educate. Second, like the encampments that are built as climbers ascend mountains. Our programs offer a place to stop along the journey for rest, nourishment, encouragement, and strength to finish the climb. We feel that cancer, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other rare/orphan hematological diseases are just such mountains in children’s lives.

Members

We serve not only the children who are patients, but their brothers and sisters too. Our members are children, aged 0 to 19 year, who are ill with cancer or other hematological disease, or are the sibling or child of the person with the illness.
