Parent Getaway Weekend

Watching any child battle cancer is devastating; watching your own child do it is paralyzing. Parents often feel isolated, helpless, out of control, and out of answers.Special Love offers parents of children with cancer safety, support, and solace in shared experiences. Our Parent Weekend helps parents deal with the facts of cancer individually, and ultimately, regain a sense of control. It also features a stay at the historic George Washington Hotel in Winchester, VA with spa-caliber treatment and shopping in Historic Old Towne.

Open to parents of patients/survivors 25 years old and younger who still live at home, as well as bereaved parents.

For more information, contact Angela Ashman.
