Julien Shares Her Story Being Diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Every year before the first day of school I would find myself feeling anxious, but this time, things were different. I had never in my life felt this sort of debilitating fear/dread/confusion, and it ended up being the beginning of a very difficult yet eye-opening journey.

Melissa's Personal Journey Coping with Anxiety
As far as I can remember back in my life, I have always had anxiety. It’s like there have been pieces of me missing… like a house at night that’s meant to have all of its lights on, except some rooms are stuck in the dark.

"I've struggled with anxiety, depression, and an eating disorder for most of my life. My 'story' has had a lot to do with the gap in the health care system...that leaves people, like me, feeling lost and invalidated." - Haley Eltherington

Cam's Kids Ambassador Daniele on coping with anxiety away from home
I am so thankful for my family, boyfriend, friends, coworkers, and dance teachers who continue to support and understand why I can't always control the way I respond to certain situations, as well as help me calm down when my anxiety level is high.

The reason I am writing this is so that people may understand that it really is okay to speak out and ask for help. Directed especially to those in the hockey community, you are not alone...

Everyone experiences highs and lows - tough times and happy times. For some, the battle to make the ups outshine the downs is harder than for others. I am one such person.

UOttawa Entrepeneurs sell Hats for Cam's Kids

Recently, a group of students from Ottawa University started selling hats with the slogan "Make UOttawa Great Again" as a play on Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again". They were very successful - with every hat they sold, they gave $5 to Cam's Kids and also included a Cam's Kids bookmark with their sale. They ended up selling over 200 hats and raising $1000 for Cam's Kids! On March 16th, they presented Ambassador Andrew Hicks with the cheque signifying their donation to Cam's Kids. What an incredible show of support for the Foundation!

The initiative was headed by Erik Mosney with his partners Kyle Stinson and Mitch Robinson. Thanks so much for your support Erik, Kyle, and Mitch!

Karmady x Cam’s Kids Foundation

Cam’s Kids is a non-profit organization that I feel passionate about. Earlier this year I began making jewellery and donating part of the profits to Cam’s Kids. I have since expanded to an Etsy shop with my business partner Ani. We are constantly designing new product, both jewellery, clothing and working with vintage pieces, and we are hoping to move forward with this cause. We are now adding select items to our shop, with specific stones and stamped wording that will be sold with 10% of the profit donated to Cam’s Kids Foundation. The items supporting the organization will be under the title “Cam’s Kids x Karmady” with the name of the item.

USS Pancake Dinner

The Uxbridge Secondary School Business Leadership Class hosted an incredibly successful Pancake Dinner in December, 2015. The support that Cam's Kids has received from the Uxbridge Community has been amazing - but the willingness of young people to come together to support the Foundation is inspirational - it embodies the spirit of youth-helping-youth. Thanks to the entire class and to everyone who attended the event!
