July 2nd, 11-12pm

FREE to attend, but this is a fundraiser for a BMK camper, Krysty, who last September, was diagnosed with bone cancer osteosarcoma. All donations can be sent via her gofundme or venmo (@Kate-Bujakowska) to her mother. I will not be accepting any money- it all goes straight to her. You do need to register (just select cash for payment) as it is limited to 16 cars. REGISTER PER FAMILY (CAR)- NOT PER PERSON.

 

I ask that you take the time to read the parking instructions on the home page, basically, drive down, circle around park starting at the park here sign on right side of the driveway and simply continue parking down the drive and around the turn around. Attending the event means you agree to the waiver HERE.

This event is for the amazing girl described below. Families can come and play with the baby goats and chickens or out in the woods. Parents are responsible for kids and any mess they make (in treehouse for example).

Anyone who has attended a BMK event since last summer has heard me give the warning about the zipline seat sometimes swinging back and ‘biting’ one in the face if hopped off too quickly.  I then often following it up with the story of how it did that to a young girl during a first aid camp and how she had an amazing attitude about it. That girl was Krysty and my heart hurt so much when I learned that just a month later, she was hit with a cancer diagnosis.

I ran into her and her mom the other week during their last chemo treatment and while she has another major surgery ahead of her, her smile proved that nothing can scare her now. Her unwavering positive attitude and the gratitude her mother has expressed to me time and time again for the healthcare team, her community, friends and strangers, has kept me grounded in the goodness of people even when the world tried to prove otherwise. I have wanted to hold a fundraiser for her and this seemed like the perfect way to celebrate her final chemo treatment.

Through December, Krysty went through eight chemotherapy treatments and several blood transfusions. In January 2022, she had surgery to remove and replace her femur bone and part of her knee with a titanium expandable prosthesis. Her healing and recovery will include physical therapy, more chemo and immunotherapy treatments.
Inspite of this challenging and painful journey, Krysty and her family remained strong – thanks to the support from their community. They are grateful for the excellent care from the doctors and healthcare staff at the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
Krysty’s mother, Katarzyna Wolniak-Bujakowska sends her heartfelt thanks to all of you for your financial support to help pay for Krysty’s medical bills.
