Inheritance of Hope is an amazing organization. We were a part of the May 2017 retreat. The groups were encouraging and life changing and having time with family was refreshing. The volunteers were so caring and they helped to create memories that my family will never forget.

Amazing organization. Me and my daughters were fortunate to attend The Legacy Retreat in Orlando, FL, serving families with a possible upcoming loss of a parent and the generous outpour of love, support and activities were mind blowing. I'm forever grateful for this organization .

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.

There are no words to express the amazing feeling we have after experiencing this trip. I watched a volunteer carry a child off the bus late at night after the mom had to go back to the hotel to rest. This volunteer loved, cared for and allowed this child to continue to have fun way into the evening at Magic Kingdom. This is the most self-less group of people I have EVER met in my life. I honestly cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have made these long lasting friendships knowing there are people going through exactly the same thing we are facing. God bless each of you at Inheritance of Hope including donors, staff, volunteers and families! We love each of you so much!!

Our family was invited to attend the Legacy Retreat in Orlando Florida. We were pretty excited about this trip for months and counting down the days constantly, but little did we know the how incredibly amazing it really was going to be. It exceeded our expectations 100% plus some! We were overwhelmed with the amount of love and service we received from each and every volunteer and also the other families attending the retreat. We were able to create new relationships with families that are going through the same struggles as we were. We laughed, we cried, we played, we rested, we learned and we loved. This experience was incredibly positive and uplifting spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. I want all families facing the loss of a parent to know about it so they can benefit it. We will never forget the memories we made there and all the inspiration we received while in their care.

IOH and its team of volunteers helped my family and I navigate the emotional challenges of my late stage cancer diagnosis. While my daughter is only 4 and unaware of my cancer, I will apply the tips and guidance received over the next few months to begin sharing information with her in small doses. Additionally, my husband and caregiver, learned so much from networking with other caregivers and counselors. Finally, I learned that living my life with intention and proactive planning is not a sign of giving up hope.

IOH is an amazing organization with a strong mission and vision for helping young families who are facing the loss of a parent.

Inheritance of Hope is an amazing organization! Everything was so organized and thought out. No stress on us. The counseling sessions were the most helpful and really opened my eyes to how others are also struggling with an illness. My child , age 12, always had a smile on her face and made a special connection with another girl her age. The volunteers were amazing and so very helpful. The fast passes and VIP treatments made the parks more enjoyable because we didn't have to wait in the long lines. When I applied for this experience I wondered what the catch was. There was no " catch" and I can only say positive things about our retreat. So many wonderful, caring people made this possible and I can't thank them enough.

Truly focused on supporting and helping families. The tools we received and overall investment of time and love, have greatly eased our burdens. They took wonderful care of us, and can think of no other organization to support in the future. Young family focused, an area that is sorely lacking in the cancer community.
