      Children impacted by cancer spend day with New York Jets

      A group of children whose lives have been touched by cancer and other diseases got a chance to put their worries aside Wednesday and visit with the New York Jets.

      Twenty-five Camp Good Days and Special Times campers spent the morning at Jets training camp in Cortland. The children got a chance to tour the fan zone, watch the morning practice and meet and greet with players.

      All of the children have been touched by cancer, sickle-cell anemia or other life-threatening challenges.

      Camp Good Days and Special Times offers free summer camping programs to the children at a recreational facility on Keuka Lake in Branchport. Local programs and year-round activities are also offered. The programs are made possible through community support and fundraising along with grants from the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation.

      Camp Good Days has served more than 44,000 campers from 22 states and 28 foreign countries.
