Jacob’s Heart has provided such a great level of comfort, connection, and fun both for Evan and our family. It’s an organization that allows our son to feel joy, to connect with other kids that have been through similar experiences and to feel like a “normal” nine year old boy which is such a blessing. Camp Heart and Hands is something that we all look forward to for months. Evan counts down the days until the next camp! It truly is our favorite time of the year. It allows us to take a break from lifes hectic schedule, to have that great quality family time, to make new friends and connections, and most importantly to just have a great time! Evans favorite activities this year at camp was taking a beautiful morning hike without his wheelchair. Last year he wouldn’t have been able to do that. He also loved the carnival and rock wall! Evan made it half way to the top. A huge accomplishment for him and of course the pool!  Words cannot express how grateful we are for Jacob’s Heart. They have helped us get the “joy” back in our lives and that is the best gift anyone can give.
