KyMel, Inc's mission is to provide connecting experiences for families facing cancer. We have two flagship programs: Camp Hope, a camp for kids with cancer, and Camp SIBsational, a camp designed for the siblings of kids with cancer. These experiences improve the mental, social and emotional well being of the campers.
Why are we raising money?
In light of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID 19) pandemic, we have been forced to cancel our in-person camps this summer. Instead, we will be offering Kamp KyMel: A Virtual Camp Experience. This experience will bring the life-changing spirit of these camps to kids facing cancer directly in the safety of their own home. KyMel provides all of our services free of charge to families facing cancer and estimate it will cost around $30,000 for us to offer Kamp KyMel.
We need your help!
We rely completely on volunteers and have no paid staff so you can be assured that your tax-deductible donation will directly help us continue to offer these life-changing camps free of charge to these amazing families.
