INHERITANCE OF HOPE INC
June 18, 2013

I am a happily married mother of three, ages 11, 13, 15. In 2007 I had stage IIIc breast cancer, and we went through the trauma of moving home from our life as missionaries in Eastern Europe to face treatments, surgeries, and complications along the way. I was considered cancer free for five years, until January 2013 when we found stage IV metastatic breast cancer in a new tumor, bones, and right lung.

We were nominated to participate in a legacy retreat with Inheritance of Hope in Orlando, FL at the end of May, and were absolutely blown away by the blessing of this group! From our first greeting at the airport to the last goodbye, I was impressed with the genuine love and attention to detail that was shown to us by every volunteer. Deric's personal testimony was both emotionally powerful and a comfort to me as the patient facing death sooner than I would have thought or hoped.

I did not realize how much my family needed to share this experience, until the opportunity was given to us. Words cannot describe what it meant to us.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find more funding so that they could extend the Legacy retreat to be one day longer and allow for more group sessions.
