One couple put it best with their response to the question, “How has this week impacted you as a couple?
“Maybe the more accurate question is, “How have I NOT been impacted?!” — This experience touched every aspect of my life in the following ways: Physical – a much-needed, stress-free vacation for me AND my husband; Emotional – a chance to show my husband how much I appreciate his unending support; Mental – an opportunity to draw courage and inspiration from other participants (and hopefully be a source of the same for them) and a time to feel truly free and not self-conscious about the physical impact cancer has had on my body; and probably most importantly, Spiritual – a reminder that the POWER of truly GOOD, SELFLESS, and KIND individuals can be unstoppable! LPHOH continues to prove this in spades! — After being with the other couples, Little Pink staff and volunteers for only one week, my husband and I feel like we have known them all forever! Our hearts have been filled to the point of overflowing with love and compassion, and a fire has been sparked in us!
Grande Bay Resort is the Premier Sponsor for the trip, housing all of our couples in their luxury accommodations. The couples got to experience paradise as they sauntered off on an island taxi tour, stand up paddled, spent the day at an amazing villa, snorkeled, relaxed on a sunset cruise and ate at all of the best restaurants on the island.
Couples attended from all over the United States- Alabama, Maryland, Indiana, Utah, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Ohio, and Nebraska! If you would like to apply for an upcoming retreat, please visit www.littlepink.org. Applications are open through July 1, 2016.
