I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer with mets to my liver and spine. I have a wonderful husband that i have been married to for 3 years. I have a 9 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. For the first time in my life, i felt truly settled until we received the diagnosis. We just moved into a house, we had paid down a lot of our debt. Chemo debilitated me to the point that i had to quit work. For the first time in my life, i couldn't pay all the bills! My emotions were up and down. This spring i decided to join a support group. Turned out my group leader also worked for inheritance of hope! She told me about the organization and we applied for a legacy retreat. We were accepted! I can only try to tell you what a blessing this retreat was for my family. It was the first time i have gotten to see my kids look of wonder when they saw Disney, etc. I will never forget their faces. The people who work for inheritance of hope and the many volunteers work so hard behind the scenes to make it a fun, relaxing, but also emotionally intense experience. We got to meet some wonderful families. I will never forget all of their faces. Some of my favorite times were with the group sessions. I love hearing other people's stories. I would highly recommend a legacy retreat to anyone. I know when you are sick it's hard to imagine going on such a big adventure, but I promise that everyone is there to take care of you and to make the retreat a long lasting memory for you and your loved ones.
