This nonprofit is top rated for so many reasons and I can speak from several different vantage points, My family attended a Legacy Retreat in 2011. Because our lives were changed and our family legacy was impacted in such a meaningful way I have been a volunteer and donor since then. I am committed to support this unique ministry where love and grace is seen in action with each family served.
Inheritance of Hope provides families like mine with help, support and most of all hope during the crisis of terminal illness in families with young children. IOH provides families with an all expense paid trip to a Legacy Retreat. This retreat provides families a much needed respite from
the struggles that are a daily reminder of terminal illness. Precious memories are made and intentional legacies are encouraged and supported through volunteers helping and loving on families. I almost forgot to mention!! The retreats are fun and the activities are endless and the volunteers are second to none!

Our family (Melinda Caldwell, Maddi Caldwell, and my self Jeanette Cain(mother of Melinda))
Truly enjoyed our experience with IOH. I cannot express enough what a blessing it was to realize this was a faith based organization. I feel it brought us all closer to God and close with all the other families and volunteers there. The closing service was incredible. I wish I could get a copy of the video of the lady who started all this ( I'm terrible at remembering names) and her testimony. It touched my heart so much and I would like to show it at my church to get support for IOH. And share with other churches in our area.

Our Family just returned from an amazing IOH legacy retreat. It was an unbelievable family experience for our family. My husband and I along with our 5 children were were not only treated to an all expense paid Disney vacation but we were given tools to navigate my husband's terminal cancer. I felt like we totally left cancer behind and were met with unconditional love from the first moment we met our volunteers. The staff and volunteers have a selfless commitment to ensuring that not only every need of our family was met but that we also were able to make countless memories and have a great time. I now feel like I am not only in this cancer journey and that I've made friends from the IOH retreat that will support me on the road ahead. Some day I plan to pay it forward and become an IOH volunteer.

As a single mom of 2 young girls this foundation spoiled us on a trip we would have never been able to afford on our own. With a terminal diagnosis of lung cancer, I get very tired easily and have such a hard time keeping up with my kids and being organized. They really took all the work out of a vacation and it allowed us to have so much more fun and enjoy each other! It was great to interact with other adults with young families going through the same kind of struggles as well as my kids meeting other kids that can relate! We have met a wonderful support group and hopefully have made life long friends. I am truly grateful for this once in a lifetime experience and hope other families will be able to go on a retreat and make lasting memories as we have! Thank you IOH! Forever in our hearts! ❤

Me and my family had the most wonderful time and enjoyed all the staff and their assistance in everything especially Alan who was such an inspirational and uplifting addition to all of our experiences. Getting to hear some of the stories and experiences of others with similar troubles was nice and also sad but I would recommend this to anyone having similar problems and we have done just that. Thanks for everything and adding to some wonderful memories for my whole family.

My family attended when I was only 15, and it just amazed me. I was nervous at first, but I met so many children in the same situations I was in. At home I never had the chance to meet anyone my age who had a terminally I'll parent. The organization really gave me the hope that I needed to help me and my family through our trails. After my mom passed away, I came back as a volunteer with my father. I absolutely loved it. There is nothing I love more than helping a family just like Inheritance of Hope once helped me. They go above and beyond to make these families make lasting memories and use helpful tools.

My family has been struggling with the news of my terminal cancer. A friend told me about Inheritance of Hope. It's a wonderful group that provides a beautiful setting for a retreat. They provide a safe environment for parents & children to learn ways to deal with a terminal diagnosis. They also pick up the tab for lots of entertainment & ways to make memories. Our trip was to Orlando, FL. We went to Disney, Universal, Sea World & we were sent on a special date night. It is a group that I highly recommend.
