At the end of each retreat, Healing Odyssey graduates are requested to write a letter thanking the many donors who help make our retreats possible for them. This is an example from HO#48:
“How to I ever thank someone for such kindness that allowed me to attend the Healing Odyssey retreat. I can’t begin to tell you how honored I was to be accepted on a scholarship thanks to you.
I was pretty much at my lowest low. Lost my husband to cancer April 10th 2015, so I think the whole month of Aprils 2016 was a blur as I went through his 1 year anniversary reliving what he went through. Then to have the end of the month April 30th to begin a new chapter in my life were I learned at the retreat my favorite word is JOY.
A little of my story. I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian cancer on July 2011. Had surgery, then chemo and was in remission until August 2014. Surgery again, then chemo. Husband was diagnosed September 2014 while I was going through chemo. God gave me such strength to be his caregiver. He passed away April April 2015 and I had my second re occurrence. Surgery again…this time doing it all alone without my husband.
So I just want to say that this program is such a blessing to so many ladies after hearing their stories. You sent out a new me!! I WILL BE OK!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
