Favorite Children's Cancer Connection program or event?
Day Camp is Matthew’s favorite CCC program because he was able to assist multiple times as a counselor during the summer of 2019. Seeing kids interact with each other while having fun at the Hansen Home for Hope was so inspiring to see CCC’s mission at work.
