This event will be held September 27-29, 2019 and will provide the opportunity for families a retreat away from the chaos and stress of doctor appointments, fear of the unknown and the stress that cancer inflicts on the family. A fun-filled time of smiles, laughter and making positive memories.
A chance for families to connect and talk with professional counselors/social workers. Parents can learn how to help their children through this difficult time. A time to provide children with healthy ways of coping with the stress this causes on them and their parents. A chance for everyone to receive additional therapy and other professional resources.
All families will be pampered the entire weekend with lodging, meals, activities and of course and the water park. Our goal is to provide up to 30 families a cost-free and stress free weekend retreat. We will have break-out sessions, Doctors, Entertainers, & Speakers on hand connecting with families.
