A camp for kids dealing with cancer…
Sadly, it wasn’t a great experience for him.
Here are his two letters home:
“June 22, 2010
Dear Mom and Dad,
I am having the best time ever. It is the first day. I already made 3 friends. Their nicknames are Flash and That Guy Did It and Harry Potter. I was wondering if my Mindstorm NXT 2.0 is there. Anyway, we did a lot of fun stuff.”

Hi Mom and Dad,
I am having a horrible time. There are 2 people that hate me and they are That Guy Did It and Flash, so they are not my friends anymore. Flash and That Guy Did It called me asshole 6 times and if I tell they will call me it more. I have but the counselors won’t do anything except say NO. They have called me also butthead, mentally challenged, weirdo, weirdo man and I really want to come home early. I at first cried in the bathroom for 20 minutes then asked Chief to let me go home early, but I can’t so I just went to the nursing station. The lady was nice and gave me Gatorade and animal crackers. After that I still just start crying in the middle of everything so I go back to the bathroom again then they call me cry baby and I still have 4 days left. I have been praying to go home. I love you mommy.
My heart hurts for my son...
