Lauren and her Camp Ooch mates
Welcome To Lauren's Tumour Ninjas Team Page

Our Story

Lauren the "Tumour Ninja" was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in April, 2013.

Camp Ooch was, and continues to be, right beside her through 14 cycles of chemo, spine surgery and rehab.

Camp Ooch accommodated the bumps in the road or change in course that this journey took Lauren on - whether it was the best "crap" party ever, in-hospital entertainment while having chemo administered, providing crafts/fun while awaiting clinic appointments/tests - which take a long time sometimes, or going to day camp in between chemo cycles and not needing antiemetics (meds to tolerate chemo) as she was having too much fun to feel lousy.

Camp Ooch allowed Lauren to be a 6 yr old girl, not a 6 yr old girl "with cancer".

We want to give back and help Camp Ooch support other children and their families who are walking or running in Lauren's shoes figuratively speaking. If these kids can take on cancer, the least we can do is run 10K.

"AYE YAH" cancer!
Thank you for your support!
Lauren the "Tumour Ninja"


About Camp Oochigeas

Camp Oochigeas, or “Ooch”, has been providing magical camp experiences for children affected by childhood cancer since 1983. Camp Ooch is much more than a summer camp. Ooch is the only residential camp in Ontario to offer on-site IV chemotherapy treatment and blood transfusions. Camp Ooch offers year-round programs for children affected by cancer in Muskoka, at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), two other regional cancer centres and Ooch Downtown in the heart of Toronto.

 

As a registered charity receiving no government funding, this is all made possible by the generous support of fundraisers like you.
