|CURE Childhood Cancer’s bereavement programs reach out to families who have endured the loss of a child to cancer – a loss that no one should ever have to endure. Our support programs focus on remembering and honoring the children who have died, facilitating connections between families who have suffered this unspeakable loss, and fostering ways to help one another along the journey of grief.
Each January, CURE hosts a special weekend retreat for parents who have lost children to cancer in order to bring them together with professionals and others who are walking the same journey. For the first time, CURE is hosting a second bereavement weekend in partnership with Remember the Rainbows for the entire family.
This family weekend, being held July 25-26 at Stone Mountain Inn, will be recreational in nature and is aimed at providing entire families an opportunity to reconnect with each other and spend time with other families dealing with similar circumstances in an environment that is enjoyable for all.
For more information about the upcoming weekend retreat, please contact Meri Long, Director, Patient & Family Services.
