At Rett’s Roost, we hope to create a peaceful, empathetic space for families to connect, feel joy again, and heal their hearts.
Our seminal program was started in 2015 with two Positively Healing Retreats for families of childhood cancer survivors. The next year, we added our Open to Healing Retreats for bereaved families to the schedule. Each year the number of retreats we were able to offer grew. In 2020, the global pandemic changed everything. We were able to create a bunch of virtual programs for families that still honored our mission of providing a sanctuary to cancer and loss families. With the widespread efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine, we were able to safely offer in-person retreats in August and October of 2021. Read more:
