WHEN Jordyn Miller became the face of Camp Quality's Mini Camp's Appeal in June, the goal was to raise enough funds to run the first mini camps by Christmas.
Jordyn's photo and story was circulated far and wide and donations flooded in.
An amazing $130,000 has been raised so far but Gary Nunn of Camp Quality said they are just short of their target.
"Our goal is to raise enough by the end of the year to launch mini-camps in 2014 in the region, so we can support families who have a young child with cancer. This support is crucial for families like Jordyn's, who tell us that the specialised, optimism-building support Camp Quality can offer will allow them to feel much stronger in facing their cancer journey," he said.
"A huge thank you to everyone who supported our appeal – we're almost there."
The location of the first mini camps is yet to be finalised but Gary said that if enough interest is shown locally then that would be taken into consideration.
"You can still donate to the campaign by visiting http:// www.mycampquality.org.au/jordyn or calling 9876 0500.
By donating you'll be helping Camp Quality to get one step closer to launching mini-camps for young kids living with cancer - just like Jordyn. If you're a family who has a child living with cancer aged four to six years, please call 9876 0500 so Camp Quality can add your name to the list of attendees for the very first resilience-building mini camp in Northern NSW.
