Pool Party at the YMCA

The Jorgensen YMCA opened its doors to 35 of Cancer Services’ child clients on July 17 for a pool party. The children, along with their parents and siblings, enjoyed their time flying down the waterslide, playing ping pong and video games, and eating donated cakes and treats.

“The kids had a blast,” Leah Kneubuhler, Cancer Services child advocate, said. “This was an opportunity for the kids to just be kids and forget about their diagnoses and have fun. The families were able to meet one another, and overall, spend some quality time together.”
