I totally agree with you. Our son Jacob was at the same MN camp June 1-6, ie in the prior group. Now there are 10 kids ill with H1N1. An immunocompromised young girl died in Mn earlier from this deadly strain. Cheri
I'm sorry to hear that some of you are so upset with MDA. I agree it is a cover your a$$ mentality, but what would all of you say a child died of swine flu at an MDA summer camp? I would rather have my child disappointed and alive then go to camp and risk severe illness. I feel for the parents who have unreimbursable travel expenses and for that, I think MDA should work with those parents to reimburse them with camp monies.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just disagree with many of the statements in this discussion.
