2016 Lighthouse Family Retreat
We had the opportunity to experience the Lighthouse Family Retreat first hand. The Lighthouse Family Retreat is a week of relaxation at the beach for families affected by childhood cancer. Sammie and the Long Live the Little Ones team connected with the kids and the volunteers. While at the retreat we were able to collect 12 more drawings for the book. One of the most memorable drawings was one a young boy did for his little sister who wanted to be a fireman when she grew up. While at the retreat we were able to play with the kids by the pool and watch them practice for the big talent show at the end of the week. Overall, the retreat was truly an amazing experience and Long Live the Little Ones is proud to support Lighthouse.
