I have just received a copy of The Times for Orange County and would like to thank you for the very good write-up about the Cystic Fibrosis Summer Camp, which took place during August.
I am the founder and secretary of the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund in England. (The fund) sent out the 12 children for their wonderful holiday in California. I spend all my time (sometimes it feels like 25 hours a day, not 24) raising the funds for holidays for our CF children.
We do not have any similar facilities in the U.K. for holidays such as this. I feel that the children gain tremendous benefits from being together, and being allowed to do many things they enjoy.
Our children stayed with some wonderful CF families before and after camp, and I would like to record my sincere thanks to these people for looking after our children so well. Every one of the children was delighted with their holiday, and I am now being pleaded with to allow them to go again. I feel sure that some very lasting friendships will emerge from this.
