From Donors, Volunteers and Corporate Sponsors

“I have met so many families that have had a child with cancer, and gotten to know them well, but the time I spent with the families there was different. We were able to talk and listen to stories that have changed me.”
– Tammy, retreat mom

“Our trip to Lighthouse was just what our family needed. We had spent way too many days apart while our son, Ryan, was sick. You allowed us so many great memories that we will cherish forever.”
– Missy, retreat mom

“I feel so fortunate for the new friendships with other families made during that week at the beach. Not only is the retreat itself such a blessing but these relationships that it fosters are truly a gift.”
– Kristie, retreat mom

“We as a family decided this was our most favorite vacation. The food was fabulous and our accommodations were just what the doctor ordered. We met lots of new faces and now when we go to the clinic for visits, we always run into someone we know.”
– Phyllis, retreat mom

“ Lighthouse was fantastic and the kids are still talking about it. They didn’t want to leave. We have made friends that are so supportive. It’s so hard to believe what love and care we received from all your volunteers. I feel very blessed to have been there.”
– Eleanor, retreat mom

“My greatest fear in serving at Lighthouse was that I was going to be sad … seeing sick kids, not knowing how to act or what to say or that I would just cry. The retreat was completely different than what I expected. Everyone had a great time. The kids were laughing and playing and sometimes you even forgot you were there helping kids with cancer because there was so much joy … we felt like a big, happy family on a vacation.”
– Trish, family partner

“At the end of the retreat, I felt like I got as much out of the retreat as the families did … they were such a blessing to me. I’m really glad I made the decision to serve. It was one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done.”
– Steve, family partner

“What an amazing opportunity to serve together as a family. Given a choice of camps to attend the next summer, our son asked, “Please can we go back to Lighthouse?” It doesn’t get any better than that.”
– Julie, family partner
