Listen to mom’s individual F.O.P. story. Reflect on the challenges and successes of our F.O.P. experience. Hand each other tissues. Be rejuvenated through 12 workshops on supportive topics. Have spontaneous dance parties. Buy each other drinks. Voice words of encouragement to new girlfriends. Spend time with the amazing Jeannie Peeper, founder of the International F.O.P. Association. Receive updates on our ongoing successful clinical trials. Laugh. Hug. Laugh. Hug….and repeat as necessary. Retreat to our ocean front rooms to process, sleep, or cry. Nod our heads in solidarity of purpose. Oh, and buy drinks for each other.
“Hello beautiful friends! I have to say a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you for making my heart lighter and my hope brighter. I could not walk this road without you! This weekend has truly been a game changer.
I can’t put into words what I have experienced these last 3 days. I’m armed ( literally) with knowledge and more hope then ever. I have met 40 amazing women that know exactly how I feel. I have laughed and cried with them. They are now my tribe. The ones that get me. The moms that came together to make this retreat happen I am forever grateful for. The friendships I have made are invaluable. I will never forget this experience. I’m coming home with power and knowledge to fight for my son. To fight to keep him moving. #curefop #hopewins.”
I truly love each of you for your unique contribution. THANK YOU to the planning team for pulling off a fantastic retreat! The weekend has been a gift I didn’t know how much I needed.”????
