Doug and Brenda Miller were part of planning and preparing the inaugural Victory Lane Camp week in 2013. The same year, they attended with sons Luke and Connor as one of the first Victory Families.
“I was focused on the planning, and didn’t think of how much we would benefit as a family,” Brenda noted. “Meeting the other families was great. It was nice to meet people with similar situations.”
The Millers’ involvement with Victory Lane Camp began after getting to know Camp Founder Brett Fischer, who serves as Luke’s physical therapist. Brett started working with Luke at age four, and the Millers and Fischer’s became friends through this connection.
Camp helped the Millers’ church relate with their family and understand their challenges better. During the 2014 camp, several people from the Millers’ church volunteered to serve during camp week.
Although the Millers already had connections with several of the families before attending camp, these relationships were enriched during camp week.
“Camp was just the start,” said Brenda. “The vision is much bigger.”
