Giving from the Heart

Here at VeryVera Camp, we are proud of the many bright young people we get to work with. One of which is Michele J. Lundy. Michele is a junior counselor at VeryVera Camp and has a special connection to this month’s camp, Heart and Sole. 


Heart and Sole, Inc is a nonprofit that benefits the Children’s Hospital of Georgia here in Augusta. For our February camp, we are partnering with Heart and Sole and giving back a portion of each registration to Heart and Sole. 


Michele, a previous patient at the children’s hospital, shares a little bit about why she believes this month’s camp is especially important. 


“I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia pre-b cell on December 28, 2011. I was 7 years old and the treatment plan was 2 1/2 years of treatment. The Children’s Hospital Georgia offered to put me on a clinical research study so that I didn’t have to have as much treatment. I started VeryVera Camp when I was 12 years old because I want to be a chef when I grow up. I am now a junior assistant counselor and love it. I am really proud that VeryVera camp is giving back to the children’s Hospital of Georgia to help other children.

On March 1, 2020 I will be six years off a treatment, but I still go to the Children’s Hospital of Georgia once a year to get a physical and have my blood counts checked so the fact that a portion of this camp raises money to support the Children’s Hospital is very important to me.” 


Thanks for your support of VeryVera Camp and Heart and Sole!
