What Camp Freedom Means to Me
My name is Ronnie. I was born July 28, 1987 in Memphis, TN. I was diagnosed with severe Hemophilia A at 6 months. I also have a younger brother who has hemophilia and just like today, no one knew what that was growing up. The people around us had a hard time understanding, especially since we were so active when we weren’t having bleeds. When I was 7 years old, we went to our Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) for a check-up. We were told by our nurses and social worker that there was a camp for Hemophiliacs. When my brother and I found out about camp we were excited! Tennessee’s Camp Freedom became a place where I could just be myself and didn’t have to explain myself. I went to camp as a camper until the age of 15 learning about my hemophilia and how to self-infuse. When I was 16, I became a Junior Counselor at Camp Freedom. Since becoming a counselor, I’ve participated in youth leadership initiatives like NHF’s NYLI (National Youth Leadership Initiative), CLOTT (Community Leaders of Tomorrow Today), and other leadership programs provided by the (Tennessee Hemophilia Bleeding Disorders Foundation) THBDF. In 2008, I won the Todd Hurt Counselor of the Year Award and at THBDF’s Annual Meeting the following year I received the Outstanding Camp Freedom Leadership Award for 2008. As long as I’m able, I will always be at camp and it will always be a part of my life.
Camp Freedom is fun!
One of the best things I like about Camp Freedom is Gold Rush. It’s ALL day FUN!
Tim is a great guy & I’m glad he is at camp. I learned how to give myself my factor. A lot of kids did. Camp Freedom is the best! I have always had a blast!! My friend Korbin is cool. Mary is fun to be around.
