Dawn Wolff, “Mother of Camp Heartland,” Dies
Dawn Wolff, the “mother of Camp Heartland,” died August 16, according to a One Heartland statement. Wolff was the mother of Nile Sandeen, the HIV-positive boy whose status caused an uproar in Mequon, Wisconsin, in the early 1990s. Her struggle on behalf of her son inspired the creation in 1993 of Camp Heartland (now known as One Heartland), a camp for children affected by HIV/AIDS. Funeral details are pending.
