Meet Alaina

Greetings from a beautiful Camp New Hope!

We would like to introduce our guest this week Alaina age 10 and from Florida.  Isn’t she just beautiful and would you look at that smile.  Alaina is one of 30 people who have been diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis with significant stenosis of mid-aorta above her renal arteries as well as right more than left renal artery stenosis.  She also has mesangioproliferative glomerulopathy, acquired hypogammaglobulinemia due to rituxan and gastroparesis.  Wow, what a mouthful!  Such a brave girl!

She absolutely loves riding the Kubota with her family and the camp dogs! She was serenaded by Martin last night and enjoyed the presentation by Ranger Scott, she also loved Ernie’s today and the bonfire tonight.  Wednesday we have a trip to Linville Caverns and Linville Falls and Gorge planned for the family.  She loves being outside!  More pictures will follow.

Don’t forget our 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4th 11am-2pm  Free Easter Baskets to the first 200 children. Fun for the entire family!  This is a free event for the entire community.  We had over 500 attend last year and expect even more this year.  Don’t miss the fun!
