Big Sky Adventure | Day One

A new year, a new season, a new crew filled with unfamiliar, new faces. A gathering of beautiful, unique individuals with their own story to share–the adventure has commenced. 

This is my forth year volunteering with Big Sky Kids, an oncology camp based in Big Sky, Montana through the non-profit Eagle Mount. In that time I’ve developed undeniable connections, been humbled by the vulnerability of families undergoing so much heartache, and have developed a new gratitude for my loved ones health, as well as my own. 

Life is so fragile, but I think that’s what makes it beautiful, too. It’s incredible the genuine appreciation you gain when life throws you curveballs. Your routine is thrown off, and the veil of everything that’s been hiding just below the surface is stripped away–that’s when you really discover who you love, and what’s most important to you. 

That’s what keeps bringing me back. And every year I grow more anxious to hear more stories. I crave to know how their lives have been re-shaped by a less than idea circumstance, but have grown deeper in love and compassion and understanding in the need for human existence, and for one another. 

It’s going to be a good journey, for all of us.

There’s a Tree in Montana

Take a sneak peek into the heart and soul of Eagle Mount’s summer oncology camp programs. 

 To all of my Eagle Mount family, 

The ones who have kicked cancer’s ass, the ones we’ve lost along the way and the ones who continue to fight the daily battle, this is for you all. Sending so much love from your home away from home here in Montana.
