It has been over 10 years since we heard those words and we understand how they change everything. Dealing with our initial fears and then beginning the journey forward was not easy. We needed time for personal reflection. We needed a place for emotional healing. For us, an escape to a small cabin in Puerto Rico led to “esperanza renovada” . . . renewed hope.
Cancer has changed our lives and led us down the path we are on now, helping others cope, recover, and move on. We know first hand the positive effects a restorative escape can have.
To help make this happen for others, we are building a retreat / lodge in the tropical mountain setting of southwest Puerto Rico. A place that offers an escape from clinical environments. A place to discover life’s new focus. A place to reconnect with family members. A place of renewed hope for the future.
We invite you to join us in this effort.
Renewed Hope / Esperanza Renovada, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing cancer survivors and their families a restorative escape from the often overlooked emotional / psychological side effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment.
