A nine-year-old boy from Daphne is cancer free this morning, thanks to his fighting spirit, his doctors, and the help of Camp Rap-A-Hope.
Terrence Ulmer was diagnosed with cancer when he was five years old. He had to travel back and forth to New York for treatments.
The local organization Camp Rap-A-Hope not only helped with travel expenses, it also sent him to the week-long summer camp for free, where Terrence could build friendships with other children battling cancer.
Terrence says,"it made me not think about it because there's too much fun there. In camp we did art, and swimming, and we got to go over the bridge to go to breakfast to circle time sing some songs, and play around."
Terrence's mother, Nichole Ulmer, adds, "Camp Rap-A-Hope makes the process easier. Just to get their mind off the treatment that they go through the doctors appointments. When they're out there at that camp, it's just another world."
We're happy to report Terrence is now in remission.
Camp Rap-A-Hope's biggest fundraiser of the year, the Turkey Trot 5K, is coming up on Thanksgiving morning.
