Have never met a better group of people. Everyone treated us as family and went above and beyond to meet every need we had. We were assigned a volunteer, Mark, and this man was relentless in his pursuit to make this the most memorable experience we could have. That’s how the whole organization worked. Each family had their own set of needs, and were catered to flawlessly. Words can’t express how grateful we are to IOH, a lifetime of memories gained in four days. I don’t know how they do it, but I hope many more families can experience the gift that this organization provides.

Inheritance of Hope is an amazing organization. We were given the chance to put aside our worries and have family time like we have not had the opportunity to do. It is hard to describe what this meant to us. The retreat gives you a bright spot to look back on and focus on when times get tough. I would wish for every family to have this chance. It was life-changing. The biggest difference we saw was in what this did for our kids. They got to meet other kids in the same situation and to learn that it is okay to feel the things that they feel in this life. I really miss all the wonderful families that we met who have now become close friends and and a part of our life. The volunteers were the most amazing part. Both of my kids want to volunteer to help other families once they are old enough. Thanks is just not enough for what we were given.

WOW! What an impactful time serving with Inheritance of Hope (IoH)! IoH is super organized and I felt very prepared and supported as a volunteer! I quickly fell in love with the family I was paired with and was so humbled as they shared their story, their family and their time with me. I look forward to serving again with Inheritance of Hope and would highly encourage you to look into this AMAZING organization!

I volunteered for the first time with Inheritance of Hope in May 2018 and I was impressed at how organized the retreat was, how well the staff prepared me as a volunteer prior to the retreat and supported me during the retreat, and how joyful and grateful the volunteers and families were to spend time together and make good memories.

Words cannot express how impactful the 2018 Orlando Inheritance of Hope retreat was for myself and my family. I didn't know what to expect, but the retreat far surpassed anything I would have ever imagined. I'm battling a terminal Stage 4 cancer diagnosis, and it was so uplifting to be showered with sincere kindness and genuine love over the 4 days with Inheritance of Hope. So much hope was given to myself and my family at a time when feeling so down and out. The volunteers were like angels on Earth. I can honestly say that the group interactions and time talking with counselors and others in same situation was so valuable. Yes the precious time we had making memories with our children in Orlando at the theme parks was great too, but the whole trip was so refreshing for my soul. I feel so much more encouraged and loved by not only God but from my new IOH family. From the bottom of my heart and depths of my soul, thank you so much to the volunteers and donors of Inheritance of Hope.

My daughter, her children and I were invited to attend an Inheritance of Hope legacy retreat last week (May 2018) We were not sure what to expect and were a little skeptical of a "free trip". Well the trip was certainly free, BUT it paid us in so many ways!! The love we felt from the entire IOH family was amazing! We started every day with a group activity - the kids went to their groups with our assigned volunteers. Our 9 year old had his own personal buddy (volunteer Spencer who is wonderful!) who went to groups with him and helped him as he has high functioning autism and get a little apprehensive and scared when he is not around his mom. He felt comfortable with Spencer from the beginning and they bonded immediately. Martha was the teenage girls buddy - she was equally as amazing!! They opened up to her and felt like she was family from the moment they picked us up at the airport. We were taken to Disney and Universal Studios with the help of our volunteers who made sure we never had to wait in a line! They took the kids to the pool when we were exhausted and came up and helped us get kids out of bed for breakfast!
The groups were great and we met some tough , loving, wonderful people who will forever be a part of our hearts. It felt a little weird to have these people taking care of us, if we needed a napkin - they were up and running to get it before we even finished the words! They also helped families make a legacy video for their families - this was a tough thing to even think about it. But it was great that they had ideas of things to talk about, and video recorded and edited it for you .
The best part of the trip was the look on my daughters face as she watched her children get to be children!! It was a vacation from her diagnoses of stage 4 cancer for all of us.
If you are looking for someone to donate to, please check into Inheritance of Hope!! It is a wonderful organization!!

Words could never truly express our appreciation and love for the Inheritance of Hope organization. Never before have I, or my family experienced such an outpouring of caring, service and christlike love as we did participating in a legacy retreat. The volunteers were truly angels to our family -- from helping my toddler at breakfast each morning to pushing a stroller so I didn't have to worry about it. They listened to my older children and allowed us to have time as a family making memories, laughing, playing and experiencing true joy. If there ever was a silver lining to having a terminal illness it is this trip we were able to take together as a family. Every detail was taken care of and I didn't have to worry about anything. I can't stop telling people about it -- and not because we went to Disneyworld, but because we were able to find our place in the Lord's family again -- one that includes all of the people we met at Inheritance of Hope. We were able to feel peace and comfort and joy to a degree that is difficult to describe. I would recommend and will recommend this organization to anyone that could use it. We hope to be able to donate and give back in our own ways as well.

I have been fighting cancer since 2012, I was 29 years old and a single mom. I have three separate primary cancers and then my cancer spread to my lungs. Making me stage 4 breast cancer. This trip was a perfect escape from life as a cancer patient. I loved being able to watch my kids be kids and my mom belly laugh like a kid. I am forever grateful for Inheritance of Hope.

We cannot emphasize enough how thankful we are to Inheritance of Hope for making our recent trip to Orlando (5/2018) a trip filled with unforgettable memories, joy, magic, and most of all HOPE. Deric Milligan, with the army of volunteers, and everyone involved with IOH, have thought of every detail to make the trip memorable, from the minute you arrive, to the time you say your tearful goodbyes to all the wonderful new people you have met. The retreat truly instills a sense of community with the families, all of whom are experiencing similar difficult journeys like us. Our main goal for the trip was for our daughter to meet other children she could relate to who also has an ailing parent. When we heard her say that she didn't feel alone anymore, it made this retreat all the more worthwhile, and invaluable in helping her navigate through these tough times. We want to especially thank Gabriella, our extraordinary coordinator and volunteer who made our lives so much easier throughout the retreat. Our daughter adores Gabriella and cannot wait to see her again when she comes to California. We look forward to volunteering with IOH on future retreats, and our daughter has already stated that she would also like to volunteer when she is older. THANK YOU IOH! --geri

I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2012 at 25 years old. My son was 15 months and my husband and I had been together for 5 years. It was the most surreal moment/time of my life. Since then I have undergone chemo and surgeries and have encountered many complications. Most recently trapped lung due to the disease metastisizing. For years I have been trying to find a group of people that understand what my family and I are living with every day. when I came across the website for Inheritance of Hope I knew that it would become an amazing outlet and apart of our extended family and support network. My husband and I tend to keep to ourselves. Which is funny as to the fact that our son is the complete opposite. We were nervous prior to arriving at the retreat and didn't know what to expect. From the moment we pulled into the front of the Renaissance, we were greeted with open arms from our amazing volunteers and a few coordinators. Mason quickly opened up to Tony and Nick, and our adventure began immediately. It definitely took some time for my husband and I to let go and allow the volunteers to assist with everything. We have always just been use to depending on ourselves for what we needed, what I needed. After a 24 hour drive from Maine to Florida Chris was grateful for the break on pushing me in the wheel chair and allowing his hands to relax. At first group was a little unnerving as neither of us are comfortable speaking in front of "unknowns" but bythe end of it, we both (especially Chris) had opened up beyond any of my expectations. He was able to connect and express with other husbands unlike at home where we don't know anyone in our situation. And MAson was in his moment of glory. He embraced nick and Tony and still messages them!
This trip was needed in so many ways for our family and a time we truly will never forget. I truly believe that regardless of ones current medical situation, everyone should stop to take the time off for a few days and connect with their loved ones and support. To create special memories and lasting moments that help shape the legacy each of us will leave. Lastly, attending this retreat helped me to kickstart the letters and gifts that I wish to leave for my son and husband. this retreat will forever be with my husband son and I, and we will never forget the amazing memories.

My family and I were given a gift that can never be repaid by Inheritance of Hope. I was so amazed at the thoughtfulness placed on even the smallest detail to make my family's experience more than we could ever imagine. The staff and volunteers are so gracious, kind, generous and loving. As a parent, I was so thankful for the staff and volunteers who took the time to welcome my daughter with a hug and big smile and place her at ease instantly. For my husband and myself, the opportunity to meet with other people; parents, caregivers and spouses dealing with like-minded health issues was enlightening and very therapeutic. I was not expecting the in-depth feelings experienced and frankly, I am so very thankful for the insight from the other side; the caregiver, spouse. I feel so graced to have been chosen by Inheritance of Hope. They have really made an impact on myself and my family. They truly are people who genuinely want to give back, to make this difficult time in a family's life a little easier and provide the priceless gift of hope for the future. My family's memories made during this experience will always be special, truly a once in a lifetime gift by an organization that builds legacies on hope, love and life lived. We made wonderful memories, but also are now privileged to call each and every person we met "family".

Our family benefitted from a retreat sponsored by Inheritance of Hope in March of 2018. This experience brought such peace and blessings to our family. We spent the time with other families facing a terminal disease and that is such a gift. We were loved on and cared for by volunteers who gifted us with their time and love. We had no cares as they thought of everything. We spent time having fun in amusement parks, but most importantly we spent time in group sessions. Our daughters spent time with therapists learning how to deal with the challenges of a very ill parent. As parents, we then learned at the end of the retreat how we can best support our children through this time of our family’s life. We as parents were also able to film a legacy video so our girls will always have my most lovely memories and encouragement from me when I am no longer here on earth. I would highly recommend this non profit.

We attended a retreat hosted by Inheritance of Hope in March 2018. I had heard great things about them, but there are no words to communicate the impact of our time with them. They do truly become family. Every detail for each age group is given consideration for the duration of the retreat. They facilitate time to laugh, cry, laugh more, cry more, to whatever extent you need! They love lavishly, not just through their planning & volunteer teams, but from their hearts. You will be changed through your time & interactions with Inheritance of Hope.

The heart and soul of this organization are the people. They are amazing at loving and caring for the people they honor during their Legacy of Hope retreats. My family was blessed with the opportunity to participate in the March 2018 retreat. From the moment we were notified of the honor of being accepted to attend, we were treated with the greatest amount of care and respect. Then when we arrived in Orlando all of the love and care ramped up 1,000%. Every activity, down to the last detail was organized perfectly with our utmost comfort in mind. Our only task while we were there was to relax and enjoy each other. The friendships that were discovered and nurtured, are irreplaceable. The memories that were made will remain as shining moments of our lives!

Since this Legacy Retreat I have felt a big burden lifted and a renewed sense of hope and peace as I navigate my way through coping with my terminal cancer.

Inheritance of Hope is such a great organization! They provided me and my family with such a wonderful experience making memories at a legacy retreat, which was an all expense paid trip to Orlando, FL with tickets to theme parks, a stay at a Disney resort, and the ability to connect with other families facing our same challenge of living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. And, all of it was made possible by the incredible volunteers that served us. My family is beyond blessed to have been touched by the inheritance of hope organization.

Our family just returned from an Inheritance of Hope retreat in Disney. I find it difficult to put into words our wonderful experience. It is a retreat that you never want to find yourself eligible to take, since it's for families that could possibly lose a parent to illness. My wife was unfortunately diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in November of 2016, which was followed by a very hectic and emotional year. We heard of I.O.H. , did some research and applied to attend a Disney retreat. The application process was easy the approval was fast. Our family's experience was way beyond any expectation we ever could of had!!! The volunteers were there to help with any need that we might have. ALL staff were thoughtful and caring throughout the whole experience. It was a perfect experience at a perfect time for our family. Seeing the joy it brought to my kids and my wife was priceless.

I can't recommend enough for families to attend one of these retreats, they won't be disappointed. These retreats wouldn't be possible without very generous donors as well. Kendra Scott was a major sponsor on our retreat which made our experience even better. Thanks Inheritance of Hope and the Kendra Scott team for making marvelous memories!!!!

I went in to this weekend with an open heart expecting to help out and provide the best time for the families of 10 women currently battling metastatic breast cancer and left today with SO SO much more. This weekend was full of many laughs, tears, a new family, and most importantly HOPE! Inheritance of Hope is one INCREDIBLE organization and I would highly encourage you to look in to the amazing things they are doing for young families facing the loss of a parent. To say this weekend made an impact on my life is an understatement. My heart is full and I can not wait to continue helping families create legacies for many years to come.

This year was my first year volunteering with Inheritance of Hope and I was blown away by this organization and the impact they made in these families lives that are battling metastatic breast cancer. They not only provided a weekend for these families to create memories and forget about their situations, they created safe spaces for these families to learn how to cope and plan for the future. I can't wait to volunteer again for the next retreat in a few months, but I would highly recommend this organization to friends and family battling terminal illnesses. It's a amazing to have a support system, to help these families find hope and faith that they can get through this! This organization is a blessing!

Our experience with IOH was amazing! All I can say is we were treated with respect and love from the moment our application went in. It was the first time my husband (and other spouses/caregivers from what I saw) were talked to and listened to as well. I was completely comfortable leaving my small children with the counselors - they love the kids and the kids adore them. There are no pockets being lined here- monies are spent judiciously. Thank you so much IOH for such a great experience for my family, and all of the other families served.

As a volunteer, twin sister of a family served, and donor of this incredible organization, I cannot say enough about the massive impact this organization makes in the lives of the families it serves. Not only do they create the opportunity for a free vacation with no stress and limitless memories that will be remembered by these children for the rest of their lives, but they give support to the families (and kids as well) in many instances for the rest of their lives.
There are no words to explain how powerful it is for a family going through crisis to have the opportunity to talk with other families going through the same thing. Especially for the children, who up until meeting other kids at this retreat often feel very alone in their family situation.
Once a family leaves a retreat, they continue to be uplifted not only by the staff and volunteers, but by the other families they met while on the retreat. Watching the powerful influence this organization has on these families has been a miracle in my life, and one I will never forget.
Another amazing thing about the organization is how many volunteers are willing to put themselves out there and really care - even knowing the emotional stress it can have. The volunteers are incredible, and so numerous that you often have to get on a waiting list to volunteer!
Sadly, the only reason this organization isn't holding these retreats more often is money. Please consider donating (it costs the organization about $5,000 for each family they support), and helping make it possible to change the lives and perspectives of these families, volunteers, staff and many others.

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!

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! ❤

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.

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.

I cannot express the absolutely joy the IoH retreat brought my family and I. Just when I was pinching myself that all this was happening to us it got better and better. The mix between the wonderful experiences and also sharing feelings with fellow cancer survivors was truly wonderful and humbling. This trip helped me more in terms of dealing with my diagnosis than any of the actual treatment or counseling I have had. I appreciate so much the love shown to us by all there and in particular our lovely volunteer who shepherded us through all the wonderful experiences. Normally I have to lead from the front but it was nice being led and not being the person in charge. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My family experienced an incredible gift from the ministry and efforts of the Inheritance of Hope staff and volunteers. The retreat talks, ministry, meals and coordination efforts, time at Disney, Universal and Seaworld with my family will be a Legacy and memories that last in my family for a lifetime. Our volunteers were well trained and served us with selflessness and love! Thank you for inviting us to the Inheritance of Hope family! WOW!

I have been fighting breast cancer for 2 years now and the type of cancer I have will end up eventually spreading and be terminal. I have always wanted to take my children to Disney and take them on an amazing vacation but due to medical bills and all the expenses that go with it I would never be able too. I was nominated by my doctor nd nurse navigator for this wonderful all expenses/worry free vacation put on by inheritance of hope. When the aay worry free they meen worry free. I didn't have to worry about navigating through the numerous parks, shuttles, all expenses associated with a 3 park trip,food, airline tickets, hotel, and numerous other things. I was able to have those moments with my family that they can remember long after I'm gone. This is an amazing non profit that not only have me his gift but I walked away with life long support and friends.

Amazing!!!! Inheritance of Hope is the most intentional, beautiful organization I've ever come across. It's been an honor to serve with them and a true joy. They have an excellent balance between making memories and intentionally equipping parents and children for the challenges they face.
