Camp Sunshine is a North Georgia summer camp for children with cancer. This book is a celebration of its first 35 years. The author, Dorothy H. Jordan, is a nurse who founded it in 1982. The next year 38 children from the ages of 7 to 18 attended. More than 400 attended in 2018, and the camp provided 150 more programs during the year in locations all over Georgia. Each of the fourteen chapters revolve around a former camper’s reminiscences about the experience of having cancer and the impact of the camp. That is followed by the testimony of a nurse who worked with the camper and other camp personnel. They are all pictured in color. “These powerful stories show us the resilience of the human spirit. Cancer touches all of our lives, and the message of this book is universal. Camp Sunshine has created a little piece of heaven in Georgia for children and their families impacted by cancer, and everyone will find inspiration in these moving accounts about the healing power of community.” - Former President Jimmy Carter.
