My story began with our first day of check in with Kim Oakes and Ms. Debra. They extended so much love to me and my family that immediately we felt welcomed and at ease. As we went through the check in process, I was amazed and all the wonderful items we received from different wonderful businesses in and around Myrtle Beach and Ocean Lakes.
When we finally found the address that had been donated to us, we just couldn’t believe it, the house was beautiful, clean, felt like home and we were humbled to have received such a wonderful gift…from people we didn’t know. The very first day we were welcomed with a full coursed meal delivered to our house by the wonderful Little Pink House Staff, after driving there and being so exhausted, we had just talked about “what we gonna eat” and was at that time that a text hit my phone saying that they were on the way with a surprise.
My husband couldn’t believe that in all the sickness, pain, treatments that I had endured that finally something good was happening to me because of it. I loved and enjoyed every day spent at Ocean Lakes and plan to take rent the same address in October 2021 if possible for my family vacation and to rekindle memories of that week. My 10 yr grandson talked me into riding a bicycle for the first time in 30 years, I didn’t even think I could still hold a bicycle up. I did it! it was an amazing surprise to me. I did things on this retreat that surprised me about myself.
Thank you Little Pink House Family, you have restored my faith in other people, I thought the whole world had gone mad but this retreat made me rethink that. The ladies that was part of my group were amazing, every one of them, the family photo shoot was super and Lisa was the best photographer I’d ever had the pleasure of working with. I sleep under my quilt every night since the weather has gotten cooler that was given to us during our morning gathering. I wish I could go on a retreat every year but I will settle for being a volunteer and helping other amazing women/men understand their journey through this thing called breast cancer!
