Cancer Kids Cover at Camp Simcha – Happiness Heals

by yossi August 12, 2012

On July 24, 2012 Camp Simcha, an overnight camp for children battling cancer and other hematological illnesses, staged an Occupy Cancer protest at Zuccotti Park and lined the warning track at Citi Field to sing the National Anthem before the Mets game. We created this video to empower others to brighten the world for children battling cancer. Everyone had a blast making this video and we hope you enjoy it as well.

Each summer, 450 seriously ill children are treated to unforgettable, medically supervised overnight camp experiences at Camp Simcha, for children battling cancer and other hematological illnesses, and Camp Simcha Special, for children with debilitating chronic conditions.

At Camp Simchaand Camp Simcha Special, children and teens trade hospital rooms and doctors’ offices for fun, friendship, and hope for the future. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities in fully handicapped-accessible facilities. Talent shows, concerts, and helicopter, hot-air, and motorcycle rides make every day super-special.

Campers return home reinvigorated, with deep friendships and happy memories to help them travel the rough road ahead.

Since 1987, Chai Lifeline and its affiliates’ mission has been to restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when life-threatening or lifelong illness was diagnosed.

Through programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifeline restores normalcy to family life, and better enables
families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.

Videography: Akiva Bomzer, Yoni Oscherowitz, Yossi Stern, & Shimi Fuerst

Editing: Akiva Bomzer and Michoel Weichbrod

Music: Ruli Ezrachi, Zevi Kaufman, Shmuly Glick, & Mikey Holder
