2017 Participant/Breast Cancer Survivor
April Carolina Beach, NC
My retreat with Little Pink helped me reconnect with myself as a person, not a cancer patient. After spending 7 months going through treatment for breast cancer, feeling fragile and scared, my Little Pink retreat was like a hard reset between being a cancer patient and a survivor. It was a reminder that I could do things; I’m not a patient anymore and I don’t have to keep missing out on fun stuff! Sitting under the tiki hut at the Lazy Pirate on the fourth full day of our retreat, I realized I felt more like myself than I had in a long time. My husband and daughter saw the wife and mother they knew before breast cancer start to come back, as the cancer patient started to move a little further into the past. Thanks to Little Pink Houses of Hope, I found myself again.
