BENEFITING: SHIELDS OF HOPE
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2016
Shields of Hope has partnered with Great Wolf Lodge to provide a fun-filled, therapeutic weekend retreat for families suffering from cancer. Cancer affects more than the fighter, it affects the entire family. It often cripples the family from having quality time together because of treatment and its side effects, doctor appointments and medical bills. This event will be held Sept 9-11, 2016 and will provide the opportunity for families to 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, 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 the water park. Our goal is to provide up to 30 families a cost-free and stress free weekend retreat. We will have Counselors, Doctors, Comedians, & Speakers on hand connecting with families. To nominate your family or another family please complete this form. All applications will be reviewed and selected by a 3rd party committee. We cannot guarantee that every family nominated will be able to attend.
