- If you saw Sarah Bolton, 12, zooming along the zip line at West Hills Day Camp in Melville, Long Island, you would never guess that she is wheelchair-bound as a result of leukodystrophy, a disorder that leads to the degeneration of the brain's white matter.

For Sarah, her two weeks at West Hills have been life-changing. Sarah's attitude has made the experience truly special. She has jumped head first into activities that even non-wheelchair-bound campers have found intimidating.

For the camp's leadership and staff, Sarah has given as much as she has received. And for the other campers, Sarah's energy is motivating.
