A group of local kids are putting their health concerns on hold for a week of fun at a special camp. This morning, children left for Camp Dream Street in Oklahoma. These kids are battling cancer, hemophilia, sickle cell anemia and other blood related diseases, but for one week, swimming, camping, fishing, and making new friends will take the place of doctor’s visits and blood tests. Members of the organization, 100 Black Men are providing the transportation to the camp. “With gas prices the way they are, we’ve got several requests that we can assist to get the students to camp. This camp is held every year, but this year some of the parents are having a difficult time,” said Eddie White, President of the local chapter of 100 Black Men. 100 Black Men is a world wide organization committed to mentoring, educating, and motivating young people.
