“Sometimes I like falling into the water, and your team has to pull you back in,' says Hannah Blischak, pictured being pulled out of a raft by Casey Fisher, front, and Anke Viljoen. Hannah first went to camp at age 10, one month after she was diagnosed. An active 14-year-old who wrestles, swims and plays basketball and volleyball, Hannah says she loves camp because of all of the team-building activities, but also because it is the one place where she isn’t the “loner” who has to give herself a needle. Her dream is to be a counsellor in training when she is 16 so she can teach other kids like herself how to take better care of their bodies and to just have fun.
