Shields of Hope wants to send families including kids suffering from cancer on a therapeutic retreat weekend. 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 affects, doctor appointments and medical bills.
This event will be held October 16-18, 2015 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 about how parents can 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, professional resources, counselors and of course the water park. Our goal is to provide up to 30 families a cost-free and stress free weekend retreat. Please consider a donation.
