It's a Wrap
Thank you to the many supporters who backed our teen's and young adults with CHD at this year's Teen Camp. These include Amway Foundation, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac, Harcourts, plus the many individuals who supported the camp attendees own fundraising efforts.
At HeartKids we appreciate that childhood heart disease requires life long care including at key life stages that's why we hold Teen Camp to equip young people with the skills and support group to transition into adulthood. These camps together with our Teen Transition Education Days help to prepare early teens and young people be more independent in their health care needs.
For the first time this year we trained 15 young adults as Peer Mentors whilst they attended Teen Camp. These remarkable young people have unique perspectives and lived experience to share with other young people and now young adults. Our Young Adult Peer Mentors are remarkable people.
