A Bit About Us
Michael’s Happiness, Inc., a nonprofit organization, was created with love to keep Michael’s memory alive. The goal of our organization is to continue on Michael’s passion for bringing joy and laughter to children with cancer.
Michael was diagnosed with cancer himself at the very young age of 5. While undergoing treatment he attended Happiness Is Camping, a camp for children with cancer. Thankfully, Michael’s cancer went into remission after a couple of years but he continued going to camp up to his early teenage years. It was here, at Happiness Is Camping, that Michael found a piece of his golden heart and true happiness. He went back several times throughout his life to volunteer as a camp counselor. Having battled this terrible disease himself, Michael was able to relate and found joy contributing to the happiness of the children that were undergoing their treatment.
Sadly, Michael passed away from an unrelated disease at the age of 29. Our goal is to carry on Michael’s aspiration to pay it forward through Happiness Is Camping. Your support will help us accomplish this as the camp relies on donations and volunteer staff members in order to provide this experience free of charge to campers and their siblings.
Through your generosity we can keep Michael’s dream alive and provide the same opportunity to children fighting cancer for many years to come.
