HOPES JOURNEY RETREAT INC
June 30, 2011
My sister who is 42 and lives in the area of the retreat was diagnosed with precancer which was a different kind in each breast. It would have been so nice if she and her husband would have been able to go to the retreat where they could be alone with no phone or doorbell or any interruptions and discussed the options. would it be a double mastectomy, take medicine for 5 years than what etc. They could have prayed, cried, shouted and what ever in the beginning of this discussion making which would have made it easier for them later.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My mom and sister are cancer survivors. They both have the support of the people involved in the retreat which is so helpful when we do not live near them.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
It would be excellent to be able to have more funds available for the retreat to be able to finish the basement etc. Also more funds to have more professional medical people and organizations involved.
General Member of the Public & I am not able to volunteer because my wife and I live in New Jersey but sometime down the way when they get established maybe we could do some fund raising out here if there is a specific piece of equipment they may need.
