I was blessed to be picked for an Inheritance of hope legacy retreat. Our experience was something that words can not explain. From the day that our family arrived, until the day that we left and beyond, they were caring, loving, hard working volunteers. We went to an Orlando retreat which included magic kingdom, universal studios, and sea world. My husband could not stay for the day at magic kingdom because of the heat, so the volunteers stayed with our three kids, who will never get the chance to go back. They got to experience something that we have always wanted them to experience thanks to IOH. The retreat starts with great surprises and ends with great surprises. sure there are some counseling sessions but you are NOT required to speak if you don't want to. The counseling is only for two hours out of your day and it really does help if you have a lot on your mind. We now have connections with people who are always going to be on our side. This is an amazing experience that I wish we could do over a hundred times.
IOH is one of the best rune non-profits that I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with. Their Legacy Retreats are amazing experiences for families facing the loss of a parent. They provide resources that are not available anywhere else. The staff and volunteers are all dedicated, kind and caring individuals. They far exceeded our expectations.
Thank you for making my daughters' birthdays (sweet 16 and precious 12) the most special birthdays ever! It makes me feel better to see those smiles returned to their beautiful faces!
My family and I were blessed to be an IOH's Legacy Retreat recipient, attending their May 2015 Orlando Retreat. We had an AMAZING time. The volunteers were wonderful -- seeing to our every need, oftentimes before we even knew we were needing it! Many close connections were made -- we all have many new friends, people who know exactly what we are experiencing because they are in a similar place themselves.
Absolutely awesome! If anyone has money to spare this is where to donate. The whole organization, all the volunteers and all the families they are helping is just amazing. Finding out I had cancer was scary, to say the least, this group really gives 200percent to helping families like mine deal with this life threatening illness. I cannot say enough about how caring and helpful this group has been for me and my family, it is like we have all become truly part of a bigger family.
We just got back from our Legacy Retreat experience. I don't want to be obnoxious, but I did rave-blog about it here: http://www.elisebarrett.com/2015/05/inheritance-of-hope-our-legacy-retreat/. It was simply amazing.
We attended the May 2015 Orlando retreat and It far exceeded anything we imagined !! Everything was planned for us , the volunteers and staff were amazing and helpful in every way possible.. Our 10 year son was especially struggling the last couple years with anger issues over his dads cancer and no one was able to get him to open up. After one morning of group activity/counseling sessions he opened up and started asking questions and talking to us about his dads cancer! What a blessing and an answer to our prayers.. We were also able to connect to people our own age in similar situations which had never happened before and we all came home with a wonderful feeling of not being along and being able to cope better!! Absolutely nothing but wonderful memories from the time we arrived!! Wonderful retreat and a answer to our prayers. We were treated like royalty the entire trip :)

How can you say anything bad about a free trip that allows you to make cherished memories with your loved ones? These people are special and our trip was so amazing we plan to volunteer in the future. All of the fun planned stuff is great, but for us getting to know the other families was the best part. Whatever your fears are about going with a bunch of strangers, put them aside. It's so worth it. It's the first time you won't feel like the only sick one in a room and your kids will have a blast! I'm so thankful for our trip with IOH.
Inheritance of Hope is an amazing organization with absolutely wonderful volunteers. Going into the legacy retreat, I had an slight idea of what to expect, but my expectations were far exceeded. The volunteers went completely above & beyond their duties for all the families. My family & I were able to make nationwide friends that I pray will last a lifetime. We were treated as VIP's from the very beginning to even now, after returning home. This organization has truly touched my heart in a special way!!! I am so thankful and blessed to have been a recipient of the NYC IoH legacy retreat.
It's hard to put into words how to tell about our experience with IOH. It was truly amazing. The people we meet have become friends. The volunteers and staff made us feel so special. We felt like we received VIP service and attention. It was an experience our family will never forget. Thank you all so much for your caring and loving attention you gave our family.
