2018 Service Project: Blue Skies
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the entire family is impacted - parents grow weary; siblings take a “backseat”; finances are stretched; relationships become tense; faith and hope falter. Blue Skies offers weeklong beach retreats to lift families above the clouds of childhood cancer.
Mission is to bring hope to families living through the challenges of pediatric cancer so that children who are sick will laugh and play and feel “normal” again; that siblings, who often compete with cancer, will feel cherished and get to have uninterrupted family fun; that moms and dads will grow strong and begin lifelong friendships with others on Kindred Journeys. These domestic mission trips are staffed by compassionate volunteers who take care of daily chores like cooking and cleaning while providing fun activities so that our guests can focus on each other and fun times together.
Like so many, we hope for the day when there is no more childhood cancer, but, UNTIL THEN… there’s Blue Skies.
