Give the gift of Ooch to kids affected by childhood cancer

It is with profound sadness to announce that our beautiful daughter, beloved sister, school teacher, marathon runner, animal lover, cycling enthusiast, and angel - Courtney Amanda Anderson - suddenly passed away on February 15, 2014. Courtney is survived by her loving parents, Karen and Lonny Anderson, Sister Ashley Anderson, Brothers Bryan and Jordan Anderson, grandmothers Ann Hennessy and Brenda Vejprava, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. Courtney was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer in 2007 and underwent treatment at Sick Kids Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital that year.
 
Her vision in life quickly became "Dream As If You'll Live Forever, Live As If You'll Die Tomorrow."
 
There was no challenge she could not overcome, no marathon she could not run, no bike race she could not ride, and no triathlon that could slow her down. She was 24 years young and so full of life, laughter, and determination. Courtney touched the hearts of many and will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. 


Camp Oochigeas can change a child’s life – for better, and forever. With no government funding, Camp Oochigeas relies on the generosity of volunteers and donors to provide year-round programs for children affected by childhood cancer at their campsite in Muskoka, The Hospital for Sick Children and in the community at no cost to their families. 

Camp Ooch gives kids affected by childood cancer the chance to just be kids

Ooch is a year-round social support system for kids affected by childhood cancer and their families. Your donations will help us bring the healing power of fun, friendship and self-confidence to kids wherever they are in their cancer journey; from hospital beds and waiting rooms, to campfires and overnight canoe trips and more. 

Ooch changes the lives of over 1,600 kids affected by childhood cancer every single year, at no cost to their families. But almost 80% of kids with cancer in Ontario don’t have access to the wonders of camp.

Together, we can help change that. You generous support will help to build more friendships, connect more families, and create more joy for kids affected by childhood cancer in communities across Ontario.

Thank you for being an important part of the Magic of Ooch.
