Leaps of Love would like to invite all families dealing with late effects of childhood cancer, to an unforgettable weekend away in Hannibal, Missouri for FREE!!

Late-effects can include damage to the brain, eyesight, and hearing; affect muscle and bone growth and development; the heart; teeth; reproductive and respiratory systems…simply to name a few.  Beyond the physical affects, emotional issues may also occur.

You will begin enjoying your weekend on Friday evening, October 9th until Sunday afternoon, October 11th.  Lodging, food, sightseeing and meeting other families will be just some of the fun you will experience.

The focus of this retreat is to connect you with other families struggling with similar situations and to make everlasting friends that will provide hope, strength and encouragement for years to come.

To register your family for the upcoming Fall Retreat, please fill out the “Retreat Interest Form” from the Forms menu above.
