She spoke about her experience with cancer with such courage and comfort and that really touched me
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2010
As the Celebrity Actors Camp continues to grow in size and popularity throughout the United States a decision was made awhile back to grant occasional camp scholarships to terminally ill and under privileged children and teenagers. Such a scholarship was awarded to a very special fourteen year-old, who was as surprised to learn of the free camp opportunity as her mother. A few months ago, Lindsey Morris was being driven to school by her mother, Belinda, when a radio ad aired on their local station announcing auditions for Celebrity Actors Camp (http://celebrityactorscamp.com) to be held in Omaha, Nebraska. Lindsey pleaded with her mother to go to the audition and her mother agreed to take her.
“The entire trip to Omaha I prayed to God that he would somehow help me find a way to pay for the actors camp if Lindsey got accepted since I certainly didn’t have the money,” said Belinda Morris. “I guess God was listening because not only did Lindsey get accepted into Celebrity Actors Camp but she was offered a free scholarship and photo shoot as well.”
“When Lindsey walked into the audition I knew there was something that I liked about her presence, but I also noticed that she had a limp,” said Celebrity Actors Camp’s Adrian R’Mante. “I asked her if she got hurt playing soccer or something, and she told me that the limp was because of a tumor from the cancer that she had. She spoke about her experience with cancer with such courage and comfort and that really touched me.”
Celebrity Actors Camp decided that day to award their first scholarship to Lindsey Morris and her family which afforded the Morris’ the opportunity to participate in the camp. “The drive to Omaha to participate in Celebrity Actors Camp was long but it was so worth it to be part of the camp,” said Lindsey Morris. “I was a little self conscious at first especially with my hair looking the way it did from the treatments, but the directors of the camp made me feel so welcome and I had a blast the whole time.”
Celebrity Actors Camp gives young actors a head start on their lives by helping them develop leadership and teamwork skills, self-confidence and the ability to earn income all while having a blast just learning how to act.
