Back in April, we had the opportunity to participate in a Little Pink Houses of Hope retreat in Carolina Beach, NC. Are you familiar with Little Pink? No? You should be! They are a fantastic organization that supports people and their families who have experienced breast cancer. We spent a week at the beach with other families and a group of wonderful volunteers. It was a carefree time after going through a marathon of treatments and appointments. Little Pink thought of everything--from activities, to meals, to beach towels, to pictures. Weeks later, my son is still talking about the people he met, about playing in the sand, and about how he went on a stand up paddle board with Daddy. We were able to focus on connecting--as a family and with other people whose lives now share the common thread of breast cancer--instead of on the act of getting through the day.
