The COVID-19 pandemic came in and affected every aspect of our lives. For mothers caring for children with rare disease and chronic healthcare challenges, the obstacles and the stress have grown exponentially. In the words of one of our moms, “This pandemic has been beyond difficult.” We have discovered a local, weekend mothers’ retreat, created as a respite and renewal for these amazing, caregiving moms, and we are looking to gift one mother this incredible opportunity. This retreat includes meditation, equine therapy, nature walks, self-care classes, and mother-to-mother mentoring. While these well deserved moms are partaking in a much-needed respite (November 12-15, 2020), the rest of the family will be given a “stay at home” care package, which will enable everyone to feel refreshed and rested. Your generous support of this initiative can be given in part or in its entirety ($1,950 will pay for one retreat).
