PATIENT STORIES

Ezra's story on pediatric pancreatitis: For other parents and caregivers please find a good medical team that will support you and listen to you. A good medical team can help you get a "medical and school plan" so tht you can focus on caring for your child during flare ups." - Ezra's family

Ezra attended Camp Hope in 2022 to help him understand his condition better and be able to share his story with other children that can understand his pain.

After picking up our son from Camp Hope, he declared it to be the “BEST CAMP EVER!” He shares his camp experience below:

“It meant a lot to me, to getting to know other kids with my condition, and that I could relate to. I wished it would have lasted longer. My favorite thing to do at the camp was archery. During the scavenger hunt, everyone came together to help each other complete the challenges. The food was amazing! The staff was so kind and friendly. My counselors were the best! I definitely want to go back again.” – Ezra
