Camp Good Days gets $20K check from Northwestern Mutual

ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) - Camp Good Days and Special Times will soon be able to cheer up so many more children suffering from cancer. Northwestern Mutual presented the organization with this check for $20,000 on Wednesday.

It follows a nationwide contest where the public voted on their favorite childhood cancer summer camps.

"Sadly, cancer isn't going away and if it's not the kid that has cancer, it's the parent," said Zach Forbes, Camp Good Days. "There's always a need for Camp Good Days unfortunately."

Forbes adds, "They have to go through that cancer treatment and they're lonely at times, don't get to go to school, don't see the parent -- they need to be a kid again and our program helps them be a kid again."

Camp Good Days services are free to families and 90 cents on every dollar donated to the camp goes directly toward programs and services.
