You Will Feel Loved​

Young families facing ALS, cancer, or other life-threatening illness of a parent often feel alone. You’re not.

Each member of the family will have intentional time in groups each day, meeting others who ‘get it’ while gaining resources and tools to cope with the challenges you face. All food, lodging, and activities are covered as well as having a personal family volunteer to help you.

The cost for this event is $6500 per family. Due to the generosity of donors, this weekend is FREE for you. We simply ask that you provide your own travel to and from the location.
The Inheritance of Hope (IoH) story began with one young family facing a parent’s terminal illness – a mom and dad with young children looking for resources for their entire family as they all navigated the mom’s illness. Surprisingly, there were none. They decided to create resources for their family and share them with others. In 2007, Deric and Kristen Milligan launched IoH with the mission to inspire hope in young families facing the loss of a parent, and the brand has grown to serve families throughout the U.S.

You are not alone

1 in 20 children will suffer the loss of a parent before age 16. Legacy Retreats® were created to help support them — and their parents — through this all-too-common challenge.
