Camp Oochigeas: Teomul Program
Camp Teomul is a program specifically for children who have had a sibling die from a cancer diagnosis. Their goal at Teomul is to provide an active, outdoor experience where campers can learn through shared experiences, connect with each other and shine in a supportive and caring environment. They acknowledge at the opening of each session that all campers here have had a similar experience in losing a sibling, outside of that the focus is on friendship and fun.
KRG Children's Charitable Foundation is proud to support Camp Ooch's Teomul Program in 2018!

The greatest minds in science from around the world will be able to study trillions of data points in one single database. Their pilot program of 1,000 whole genomes has already led to new discoveries about the disorder.

The MSSNG campaign will help to identify many subtypes of autism, which may lead to more personalized and more accurate treatments.
