Crafting a New Footprint: Camp Cole focuses on multiple medical challenges

Camp Cole was born of tragedy. When she was 13, Kelsey Sawyer Carter’s younger brother, Cole, succumbed to a year-long battle against a rare form of cancer. After 54 chemotherapy treatments, Cole Sawyer died at the age of 11. Before his passing, he touched the lives of many friends and family members as well as contacts through his positive Camp Kemo experience. Grieving parents Stacy and Scott Sawyer, together with their close friends Deans and Peter Fawcett, were so stirred by Cole’s short life that a seed was planted to raise a camp site specifically for use by organizations that focus on the needs of children, teens, and even adults with fragile health conditions, serious illnesses, disabilities, and mental health challenges.
