Episode 164: Horse Adventures for Children with Cancer and Other Life-Threatening Illnesses

Molly Reeser, founder of Camp Casey, joins The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast to share her story, the story of a little girl named Casey that changed the trajectory of Molly’s life, and the incredible work Molly and Camp Casey is doing to provide horse adventures and programming to children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. 

While attending Michigan State University, Molly was working at a horse barn and met a little girl named Casey Foote. Casey was battling cancer and would come to the barn to ride horses as a reprieve from her cancer fight. Casey and Molly became fast friends and when Casey unfortunately died just two years after their meeting, Molly decided to do something to honor Casey’s legacy, so she founded Camp Casey. What started as a one-day fun camp for children at one hospital, has turned into an ongoing therapeutic horse program for kids with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. 

Camp Casey is a nonprofit organization that provides cost-free horseback riding programs, adventures, and other projects to children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Camp Casey has four unique programs: Horsey House Calls, Cowboy Camp Outs, Outlaw Outings, and Lone Star Getaways. Camp Casey is changing lives every single day and we’re so excited to highlight their work at 1 Girl Revolution. Molly joins The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast to share her inspiring journey through life and with Camp Casey. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Molly’s life story; 
  • How she and Casey met and became fast friends through their shared love of horses;
  • The story of when Casey passed away and how Molly decided at that moment to do something to honor little Casey’s life and legacy;
  • How Camp Casey started and how it’s grown and evolved through the years;
  • About the incredible work of Camp Casey and the powerful stories of children and families that have been helped through their work;
  • And so much more.
