Camp Teaches Cancer Patients that They Like to Have Fun
One of Dr. Trent Hummel's favorite memories of summer camp with cancer patients is the time he went on a golf cart ride with 11-year-old Cody Harrison. It was the first time in a while that he had seen Cody laugh so hard. Cody has a rare cancer in the nerve tissue known as neuroblastoma, and it's not every day that he gets to take rides like that. Camp Joy, the summer program that brings together kids with cancer and blood diseases, helped give Cody the ride of his life. "Knowing you, Cody, I would say that you like to have fun," says Dr. Hummel, a camp staffer whose day job is as an oncologist at Cincinnati Children's.
