Christine’s Legacy

Posted by on

I need to tell you a story about a wonderful woman.  Christine was accepted into a retreat years ago with her family, but she could not attend because of medical treatments.  She called me a few months later and said, “I think that you need to do a retreat in Tahoe”.  I listened, she talked, […]

Family Spotlight: “Friends that are more than memories” by Ronda Carter

Posted by on

 Everyone I met on the retreat was an outstanding person who helped me see myself more clearly, with less pity and more party. Meeting other cancer patients, other moms, other families — enabled me, my husband and my son, to feel calmer and more hopeful about my future. And Little Pink gave me a stress-free, […]

Family Spotlight: “Unplugged” by Kristen Messer

Posted by on

LPHOH offers a tremendous opportunity for patients and their families to “unplug” from the whirlwind of doctors, medications, tests, pokes, sticks, and scares; all that makes up the roller coaster ride called “breast cancer”. It has provided me the opportunity to connect with others that are on the “same ride”, and the ability to see […]

We have amazing memories that were made together as a family because of Little Pink Houses of Hope!

Simple mission of smiles

It is difficult every time that we have to post that one of our Little Pink participants has passed away.  As a staff and the volunteers who have served each person taken too soon, our hearts break.  Being on a Little Pink retreat causes you to instantly have a heart that is open to falling […]
