A Maryland Camp Kesem Honoring Oren Miller
- Oren Miller. A friend of the entire parent-writer community, Oren - a dad to two young children - lost his battle to lung cancer in 2015. In addition to being a brilliant, inspiring writer, Oren is best remembered as a connector of people. Our team of twelve - many of whom met through Oren - are taking this journey to honor Oren's life, embrace the importance of fatherhood, and raise the funds necessary to open a new Camp Kesem chapter in Oren's name.
- Camp Kesem. The only national organization providing support to children touched by a parent's cancer. Their flagship program, FREE summer camps in over 70 locations, will serve over 6,000 children from coast-to-coast in 2016.
- Storytelling. 12 dads. 12 writers. 84 miles. A once-in-a-lifetime experience with friends and colleagues to bond, discover new memories and tell stories with words, drawings and photographs.
