Volunteer Profile – Jenny Lohan
How many camps have you attended?
Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?
I am inspired by the courage and generosity of Campers and their families in sharing their grief journey with us. And the sense of connection, love and support keeps me coming back.
What is your favourite season and why?
Spring. It brings with it a sense of hope and positivity, and lightness leading out of the darkness. It helps lift some of the burden to allow forward movement into a more positive future.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?
When you get advice from others about managing your grief, just thank them. Then do whatever it is that works for you to take care of yourself.
What inspires you about our campers?
Their bravery in sharing their journey with complete strangers.
A final note from Jenny:
I have been honoured and humbled to share the Camp with Campers, mentors and the team. It is a profound experience which I hope to stay involved with for many years to come.
