Illuminate Retreat 2019
on bear lake in Garden City, Utah
Thursday May 2nd - Monday May 6th
Lighthouse For Hope is excited to announce the first ever Illuminate Retreat! A 4-day getaway at Bear Lake in Utah for young women ages 18-25 that are currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
This retreat will be a chance for 12 brave young women to come together in a beautiful setting and connect with those that are experiencing the same hardships caused by cancer. It is a common misconception that pediatric cancer only impacts young children. There are so many young adults that are being treated for pediatric cancers, yet they do not receive the same programming or benefits if they are over the age of 18. This Illuminate Retreat would be an opportunity for you to feel loved and supported. As a nonprofit, we hope to spread awareness for the various aspects of pediatric cancer and all the obstacles it brings. This retreat will help bring awareness to the fact that pediatric cancer doesn't discriminate and can happen to anyone. This is another chance for us to bring light to the lives of those fighting the good fight!
