celebrating the lives of cancer survivors with family and friends

Night of 1000 Wishes: Fulfilling the Camp Can-Do Forever Wish List

For one week each summer, kids with cancer across southeastern Pennsylvania get together at Camp Can-Do Forever to forget what it's like to be sick and remember what it's like just to be a kid again.

They're joined by pediatric oncology doctors and nurses who volunteer their time to administer medicines and provide on-site medical assistance as these kids do what kids at Camp Can-Do Forever: swim, fish, hike, bike, sing around the campfire and make new friends - the kind that will last them a lifetime.

We at Celebration for Life have a special place in our hearts for the kids at Camp Can-Do Forever. And we have tremendous admiration and appreciation for the staff and volunteers who give of themselves personally to make the camp experience a special one.

Relationships by Wilbur Reeling

Celebration for Life would like to invite you to "Night of 1000 Wishes", dinner, dance and auction (including art and live and silent auction items) Saturday evening March 16th 2019...This year at the Lancaster Country Club!

We are honored to offer many fine works by notable local artists...And this year, a special piece by Wilbur Reeling, Maryland's most famous Abstract Expressionist!

"Relationships" is a 22x30 inch original work of art, framed and signed by Wilbur.

In 2017 local artist Stacy Caldwell spent an afternoon with 15 campers at Camp Can do Forever. She offered them a selection of art supplies, a bit of counseling, and let them go at it! The result was 15 wonderfully expressive drawings by the campers. She then offered to fellow local artists the opportunity to create their own artwork inspired by the kids drawings! 16 artists stepped up to the challenge, and Wilbur created "Relationships" to signify the bond between the 15 campers and artists!

We held a showing on May 2018 in the Stevens House Courtyard in downtown Lancaster where many of the works were purchased in a silent auction. A few are still available, as well as "Relationships" which we will offer March 16th at the LCC!

Please join us for this Celebration for Life special event to raise the much needed funds we need to fulfill Camp Can-Do Forever's 1000-item wish list.

In other words, help raise money for the fight against cancer - and have fun doing it!
