Cancer Services hosts Camp Care in White Castle

Staff Report @ThePostSouth

In July, Cancer Services hosted a camp for children affected by cancer called Camp Care.  This camp was held partly in White Castle and is for children with cancer and their siblings and focuses on fun.

Kids have a fun-filled week with others facing similar challenges as them with a nurse or doctor always on site to ensure that all of the children are properly cared for,” said Cancer Services spokesperson Chrissy Dupuy.  “It is such a wonderful week for these children.”

On Tuesday, July 19, the kids went to White Castle for swamp tours, games and fun.  

Cancer Services serves those affected by cancer through donations, Dupuy said.  “No one who comes to our organization pays for services so we are always so grateful for donations,” Dupuy said.  “The kids had an incredible day on the bayou, seeing animals, playing games, eating delicious food and more.”

Cancer Services would especially like to thank the following for their contributions to Camp Care:

Portapotty donated by JPT, Mr. Jamie Ponville; Water bounce house donated by Who’s Jumping Now, Mrs. Jessica “Kooney” Ourso; Food donated by Danny’s Cajun Catering, Mr. Danny Cedotal, Owner; Fire truck on site provided by White Castle Fire Department, Mr. Randy Landry, Administrator; Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, TJ Ashley, Agent; and Acadian Swamp Tours, Rodney Daigle and Ryan, Daria Ransome.
