Reno, Nev. – The Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada (HTC) knows the impact a summer camp experience can have on a child and his or her siblings. It is something children will often remember for the rest of their lives.
Thanks to Camp Independent Firefly, a medically supervised summer camp, children who are affected by inherited bleeding disorders such as hemophilia or von Willebrand disease, also get to experience the great outdoors. You can help make that happen for many of Nevada’s children.
The Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada and the Reno Aces baseball team are working together to raise funds to send children with bleeding disorders, and their siblings, to summer camp at no cost!
The public is invited to purchase a ticket to the Reno Aces versus Sacramento River Cats game, which happens on Sunday, May 28, 2017 in Reno. With every ticket purchased for $16, half the proceeds will go to the HTC to be used for Camp Independent Firefly attendees.
“Camp Independent Firefly is so much more than just a summer camp for the children who attend,” said Annette Logan, CEO, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “For many attendees this is one of the first times they are away from home. In addition to fun activities with their siblings, medical staff work with each patient to help instill a sense of independence which those affected by bleeding disorders will need to learn as they grow older.”
The only way to purchase these special Reno Aces game tickets is by calling Lisa Cervantes at the Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada in Reno at 775-657-8981, or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The final day to purchase tickets and support sending our kids to camp is May 14, 2017! Those who wish to make a direct donation, rather than purchase a game ticket may also contact Lisa at the number above.
The Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada is the only federally recognized HTC in the state. Patients of all ages are served through our established clinics in Las Vegas and Reno, as well as comprehensive clinics held on a regular basis in Ely, Elko, Winnemucca and the Owyhee community.
As a program of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, no patient is turned away from medical treatment for financial reasons. Patients are accepted with or without medical insurance and regardless of ability to pay. Additional information about Cure 4 The Kids Foundation can be found at www.cure4thekids.org.
