  • By encouraging deep healing of the mind, body, and soul through therapeutic techniques, peer connections, healthy habits, body and energy work, and mindfulness toward the natural and spiritual world.
  • By cultivating a sustainable organization through donor and grantor relationships and community business sponsors.
  • By advocating and increasing public awareness about the prevalence, treatment, and research for all types of childhood cancer.
  • By collaborating with existing, similar non-profit organizations to increase overall effectiveness in supporting families impacted by childhood cancer and child loss.

“Amidst the chaos of life after cancer treatment, Rett’s Roost was truly a haven of peace and love. Our whole family made strong connections. We felt safe and understood with fellow families who knew just what we have been through. This retreat far exceeded our expectations and met needs we didn’t even know we had! Our sincere thanks go out to the lovely Cavan Family!” – The Tajima Family
