Lighthouse For Hope is excited to announce the first ever Illuminate Retreat! A relaxing getaway 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!

Where & When: TBD

What To Expect: A once-in-a-lifetime bonding experience! Details to come.

Qualifications: You may apply if you are a female between the ages of 18 and 25 and are currently undergoing treatment for pediatric cancer or have recently completed treatment. If you are currently on treatment, you must receive doctors clearance to attend and send documentation.

Application Process: Retreat attendance is limited to 12 young women. Our team prayerfully considers each submission, and reserves the right to accept or deny any applicant at our sole discretion. Applicants will be notified of acceptance or denial by early 2020.

Retreat Cost: $300 (scholarships available)

Retreat Cost covers lodging, meals during the retreat, ground transportation, and planned activities.
