Medical Staff

Medical supervision at all of our programs is overseen by the pediatric oncology departments from the participating hospitals. These professionals volunteer their time because they enjoy being with the children when they are not in the hospital setting and believe in the Okizu mission.

In the spring and in the fall, Okizu offers nine weekend-long Family Camps, each of which needs medical staff on-site at all times. Family Camp is a time when patients, their siblings, and their parents can enjoy a relaxing weekend away from home stresses and hospitals. It is a chance for folks to spend time together as a family, and also an opportunity for them to get to know other families dealing with childhood cancer.

In the summers, Okizu offers three one-week sessions of Oncology Camp and four one-week sessions of SIBS (Special and Important Brother and Sisters) Camp. We need a team of medical staff at each session of summer camp and we rely on our medical staff and other volunteers to make every session possible.

Dr. Michael Amylon, Okizu’s Medical Director, supervises the medical staff at all sessions of camp.
