Why I CK

Hey there everyone,

I just wanted to take a second to put a face to your posts, and properly introduce myself by telling you why I Kesem.

My name is Cheerio, and I’m the UMich chapter PR and Marketing coordinator. As a sophomore at the University, I’m relatively new to Kesem; I was a counselor for the first time last summer. Despite my relative “newbie” status, I don’t think that I could have fallen harder for Camp Kesem as an organization. We’ve almost all been affected by cancer in some way, and I am no exception. In 2009 my uncle lost his fight with cancer, and I found that the experience had really changed me as a person. I think that Camp Kesem resounds so deeply with me because of the sense of escape it provides to kids who are surrounded by cancer. For me, to step away from the situation around me would have been a blessing; being able to assure others have the chance is amazing to me.

CK Love always,
