A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CONGRATULATE PAMELA J. BROUGHTON OF GREENVILLE COUNTY ON THE DISTINCTION OF HAVING A PORTION OF CAMP PreviousCOURAGENext IN MARIETTA NAMED IN HER HONOR AND TO COMMEND HER FOR HER MANY YEARS OF DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE CHILDREN WITH CANCER AND BLOOD DISORDERS WHO ATTEND CAMP PreviousCOURAGENext FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER.

Whereas, this summer, part of Camp PreviousCourageNext in Marietta will bear a new name: Pam's Peaceful Places, named in honor of Pamela J. Broughton, a longtime friend and supporter of the camp, which offers children with cancer and blood disorders an unforgettable summertime experience; and

Whereas, founded in 1994 and located in Pleasant Ridge Camp & Retreat Center, Camp PreviousCourageNext provides psychosocial support in the form of recreational and educational programs for children, adolescents, and young adults living with cancer or a blood disorder, programs that allow them to share similar experiences with peers while participating in activities that promote normal development and encourage age-appropriate coping with the challenges they face. BI-LO Charities Children's Cancer Center, a facility of Prisma Health's Children's Hospital, sends children to Camp PreviousCourageNext with the help of the Clement's Kindness Fund for the Children; and

Whereas, the camp offers a wide variety of activities, among them swimming, fishing, archery, arts and crafts, drama, bobcat rides, kayaking, nature hikes, sports, dances, entertainment and shows, shag lessons, massage therapy, therapeutic art projects, hot air balloon rides, photography, karate, horseback riding, sewing, and beauty shop; and

Whereas, since the Clement's Kindness Fund began supporting Camp PreviousCourageNext in 2002, Pamela J. Broughton has been instrumental in its operation by serving as a liaison between the organization, the camp, and the children's hospital and by ensuring appropriate care for the children and their families; and

Whereas, Pam finds strength for her labors in the strong support of her family. She and her husband, Curtis Broughton, are the proud parents of three children, LaJoia, Marc, and Jillian, and the delighted grandparents of two grandchildren, Winter and Kinidi; and

Whereas, for her commitment and faithfulness in service to the children at BI-LO Charities Children's Cancer Center, Pam Broughton is worthy of high praise. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Pamela J. Broughton of Greenville County on the distinction of having a portion of Camp PreviousCourageNext in Marietta named in her honor and commend her for her many years of dedicated service to the children with cancer and blood disorders who attend Camp PreviousCourage for an unforgettable summer.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Pamela J. Broughton.
