EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – Fighting cancer is a heavy burden for anyone but especially for a child. A local organization is easing that burden with a special event.
Joshua's Camp hosted a celebration for families of local kids battling cancer. The event was held at The Metropolis Resort in Eau Claire. The pirate and princess themed party included dinner, costumes, games, and a DJ.
The event was organized by radiography students at CVTC who say the goal was to give families a fun night to remember. "The people of Joshua's Camp kind of reached out and asked as a club if we would be willing to do this from CVTC and we just kind of organized the theme," said Kayla Noland.
Joshua's Camp serves families of children 17 and younger being treated for cancer or out of treatment less than three years. "As future health care workers, it is important for us to give back to the community and so this is just a fun little event that we put together for them to take their mind off of the hard times," said Amber Williams.
