A special day, for a special boy, now man, Ryan Tomoff. However, his special day is spent at Camp Fantastic, probably the most appropriate place to spend his birthday (if not home, that is); and has done just that for the last 11 years. Despite the many medical challenges he has endured before, during and after camp, this magical place allowed him to forget his troubles at least for a few moments, and those moments added up to minutes and on and on until he strung together the seven days of camp week! That is one HUGE blessing, and I cannot thank the many people who make that happen enough!
The following wonderful piece was put together by news reporter Mike Conneen from WJLA who highlighted and thread Ryan's story and Special Love's Celebration of 30 years of Camp Fantastic!!! A big shout of HOW HOW to Dave Smith, Dr. Steve Chanock (head doc), doctors, nurses, and staff who make this week the most magical for the 100 kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases who come simply to have FUN!
BSoleille! The very bright side of Camp Fantastic!
