TestimonialsWhat people are saying…
“The Foundation allows patients to have a community. I want to make sure everyone is included, and EFGC is that bridge.”
Dr. Heard, EFGC Board Member
“After her week at camp Clara came home and was able to tell friends about her diagnosis. She started to not be ashamed about carrying her rescue medicine. Her time at camp helped Clara own who she is and to not be ashamed.”
Mother of a Camp Phoenix participant
“My EFGC counselors have given me what I need – consistency, accountability, and accessibility. They helped me get into my comfort zone and build my character.”
