And so denial is taken agreeing to a Children's Hospital at a port within sort of chemotherapy in June of 2010. What was it like here at TH us. The first thing I thought a budget just like Jimenez though all the doctors and nurses were a lot of familiar than the average doctor I was used to seeing. They really cared about the whole family's well being and not just the patient they wanted to make sure that. Everyone in the family knew what was going on the disease and new with their child who's going through and the child like people really cared to. Suit the whole family was happy while the child stayed here and the everyone have their needs taken care of as well as the child getting the treatment that they needed. And chocolate is one of the things that to your money goes to help pay for these are not medical professionals at all these are just folks that concentrate on teaching you as happy as possible. As content as possible while you're here and you're dealing with this terrible disease coming a little bit about child life. I'm Charlie is really great fit their main focuses to make sure that the kid is happy while they're doing their team and that the family is happy to soak. They'll come in and play games with the younger kids though watch TV or play video games with the older kids. They also are the heads of camp courage so they organized a lot of and they go to the camp and go hire the counselors there and make sure that everything goes smoothly during the week of camp.

For ths you're both I understand camp counselors are identical twins camp counselors. Act can't Kurds coming about that. Just when you talk Jake. Salute. You start out as a light CU which is a leader in training camp courage. And so basically what that is is you health counselors though. And see how it works being a counselor. And then after you've gone through one year of college you can view a camp counselor instead of loyalties where you actually stay in the cabin with the kids. And that's just been the best part of both of our summer's ever since he started doing its past three years we look forward to it every year. It's really amazing just to see the opportunities that kids the due to a normal summer camp and just be kids again even if they're in the middle of their treatment. And that's sound. The kind of extras that your donation pays for it this morning when you text ths TU 51555. We're asking for. Miracle makers this hour that fifteen dollars month. Fifty cent today we're one time donation at a 180 dollars or you know what what ever you can afford. Com what that's five dollars a hundred dollars whatever you can do what's it like for you Sam. You're eighteen now all but as their as a ten year old with cancer go to camp could obviously mean a big impression on you and if all these years later pulled the fewest wins are serving his camp counselor. It was really great for me mainly because I was going to feel like a normal kid again when I was first diagnosed I used to play football basketball baseballs are really Al Gore's becoming kid. But after I got cancer Acton of the physical capabilities to do any of that anymore. So being able to go to weeklong summer camp and do zip lining go to school go horse riding. And feel like goes a regular kid with a full physical capabilities. That really made a big difference to me and being around kids that were like me because I was used to. Is being at the hospital kind of by myself with a couple other kids that I knew but really there was some friends with a lot of people that had cancer. There's not a lot of kids so. Being able to go there and meet Tony other kids my age that have leukemia and seal that did the same scars on their chest there the same treatment and I was going through. That was really big it's Meehan also. A lot of the counselors there. Just like I am our previous. Just that went through treatment and GHS. So being able to be taking care of by people that are gone through the same thing that I did. That really meant a lot to me and my parents know though is being taken really could care of while I was a week away camp if it's hard for parents send their kids to camp.

And what are you don't why they cut these ones like treatments. It showed devastate America when we got nothing in the Chinese get. Everything what would be thinking and you read stuff like this that Dianne Feinstein had a spy a Chinese fight working in her office so. Around the time her investor has meant he would never invested more than 500000 dollars in China before it was a project that he put money into what some of 500000 out. Just after the Spicer is at now is set firm is making do in 23 million dollars deals with China and guess what there invested in steel. Aluminum she ranges in it you stealing had no man or the biggest. You know critics of terrorists. Hume and here it's. Think Dianne Feinstein the Democrat side anyway Dianne Feinstein she just sit there get rich off everybody else get report. And now we understand why he street deals were cut is being paid cops are it is actually Ares it's so badly that he is about straits could admit that. Literally the FBI warned Dianne Feinstein that the Chinese were shuffling campaign donations to. All I that they were trying to influence her campaign and a whole lot when it. To the FBI told Feinstein she's satisfied working as her office manager Jack. The FBI told fines and that they're trying to influence her to campaign donations checked. Despite whatever investigation we do so Lindsey Graham are senators asking over the weekend on on it who. It what's it just treatment he not make intention to dollars off the rest of us. Where's this treatment for trump what is and he get a phone call hang there might be a spy on your campaign. Not now and I couldn't pass ski we stressed. That Matthew pocketing tens of millions of dollars more than we did before the Chinese spice it up clearly trustee of the person we just thought we let you go out and trying to influence you to campaign donations to that she took. But don't bother to return us everything's back where special prosecutor for this one. What does how. Does get a call for that we're. Good question about Paul Ryan let's go right to roll back over ghostly but so I population and. She didn't want the two leading people say it says eating trumped progression. Connie L committee just wonderful is that did not have been asking her what she cools heels and. So that's so how about starting a movement getter investigated you've had people it just kind of treatment went. Then. I would say I do senator who's going to be I'd get on it yet to senator who's gonna get on this. And basically stay on this until there is a prosecutor appointed. I mean it's really Lindsey Graham is finally talking about it that is as part of speaking of progress not so. Not that I feel so much better it a lot of these groups are evaluated him. I'm OK so anyway. Let's look at the quick speaking of making it making progress this morning we young. We are here with bill Robinson embassy arsenal best place that you don't upstate an excise exec commemorates. Once. Good morning you know make you not good thing and yet you're here matching donations this morning T ths Children's Hospital which is awesome but yeah this is a power hour.

All levels of training offered great place great fun safe place for people to compute with their friends their family and just enjoy the shooting sports or practice. We we were approached Reiner come about this opportunity to sponsor tombs hospital in the dream GAAP. And it just make complete sense to me I mean none of us want a family member in the hospital it's always trying especially. An extended stay in the saw hospital. But there's a son about seeing a little kid in the hospital for its in this day and just. That the pressure that puts on the families and of course. You know the child. And so we have a great resource here that a 100% of our donations go back to the dream that program to support these families and make it as comfortable as possible being here. And to me that's a no brainer as a business owner here Greeneville. To support that type of initiative I have kids myself and yes god forbid but if there ever in this hospital lobby so thankful that. Businesses and people in this town donated to keep this program for young when so that. I mean it makes it is is as good as it can be it in for being in the hospital long term.
