I sometimes wonder where I would be and what I would be doing had I not read a newspaper headline about five-year-old Nile Sandeen. Nile was the first child I ever met with HIV and the boy who inspired the founding of Camp Heartland.
Without Camp Heartland I would have certainly missed the pain and devastation of losing dozens of children, eulogizing a child who I loved like a brother, and experiencing moments of absolute sorrow when I knew there was nothing I could do to ease a child’s pain.
Yes, I could have missed the pain, but I also would have missed the moments of great inspiration and joy, the moments when I knew Camp Heartland was making a tangible difference, the moments I gave love and received even more, the moments that were so perfect I wish they were frozen in time.
"A Journey of Hope" provides you the opportunity to become familiar with the hopes, dreams and struggles experienced by children with AIDS and their families. I ask you to take your time with each page so you can truly absorb the substance of the children’s stories, poems, and photographs. As it has for me, I guarantee "meeting" these kids will profoundly change and inspire you.
Neil WillensonFrom the Back Cover:
I was first introduced to Camp Heartland in 1996. It didn’t take long for me to realize the impact the camp had on kids either infected or affected by AIDS. I personally can attest to the tremendous courage displayed by the campers in battling their personal circumstances. For most, it is their most special time of the year. While there has been monumental tragedy and sadness, it is eased by the hope, unconditional love and acceptance that Camp Heartland provides. I feel quite privileged to be a part of the Camp Heartland team.
– Paul Molitor, Baseball Hall of Fame 2004, spokesperson for Camp Heartland
Neil Willenson and Camp Heartland have had a profound impact on the lives of thousands of people living with HIV or AIDS, and on those who knew very little about the disease before they experienced this remarkable program. Through camp sessions, Journy of Hope trips, all forms of media, one on one relationships, and now this deeply moving book, Neil's vision has been one of extraordinary humanity, encouragement and hope.

Nothing shows the beauty of the human spirit more then what I witnessed at Camp Heartland - caring people coming together to help these wonderful children simply have fun. These extraordinary children have the opportunity to go to camp and experience memories that they will cherish for a lifetime. I want to thank everyone involved in this beautiful organization for truly representing the best we have to offer as human beings.
David Arquette, Actor
