Welcome to Rett’s Roost

A Community of Healing and Hope


We understand that when a child is diagnosed with cancer or other chronic illness, the entire family is affected. At Rett’s Roost we provide support for sick kids, their siblings, and their parents.


When your child is diagnosed with a serious illness like cancer, most people seek out others that have walked the path before them. Peer support is crucial for processing our traumas.


Rett’s Roost offers free, meaningful retreats and social gatherings that bring families together, cultivate hope and healing, and remind them how to feel joy again in their lives.

About Us

The reason we are here is…

To be a source of hope and healing for families impacted by childhood cancer and child loss, offering holistic retreats and meaningful gatherings that create connection, while honoring the process of grief and the power of love. We believe in cultivating a community of families pursuing a path of healing through shared experiences of joy and reflection.

How can you get involved?

You can help us continue to provide community and support to our families by donating or volunteering.
