Camp helps families who have children battling cancer

BARRY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — For many families who have children with cancer, time spent with other kids can be extremely limited. But a free camp in West Michigan is giving children with cancer the chance to play with other kids and allowing parents time to relax and recharge. 

Elle-Joy Won was just 4 years old when the news came.

“She was initially diagnosed with stage 4 cancer non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma,” her dad, Mike Won, explained.

When it was all said and done, Elle-Joy spent nearly four years in treatment.

“One day I’d have to get shots, and then the next day it would be great,” Elle-Joy said. “And then the next day after that I’d have to get shots.”
