Meet-ups and retreats for bereaved DIPG families
We believe nothing creates strong, lasting connections between DIPG families as well as encourages families to learn how to live with their grief in their own way like in-person time with other DIPG parents and siblings, enjoying activities and each others’ company and providing understanding in a tranquil setting.
We will be offering family meet-ups where those within “local” driving distance (ie a couple hours) of central Massachusetts can come to a DIPG family meal at no cost to them.
We will be offering one-day meetups for those within “local” driving distance (ie a few hours) of central Massachusetts inclusive of lunch, dinner, and activities for adults and children such as but not limited to a scavenger hunt, drama play, crafts, group share, and honoring our DIPG children.
We have raised enough funds to be able to do the family meals and the one-day programming, but can’t due to safety concerns over COVID-19. When there is a vaccine or an effective treatment against the coronavirus, we will schedule them. We are hoping that they can take place in spring and summer 2021 respectively.
We will be offering all-inclusive multi-day bereavement retreats at a retreat center in New England. These will include travel costs for families in the US and Canada, all meals, and activities for adult and children. Activities may include counseling, drama play, art and music therapy, swimming, hot tubbing, family photoshoots, group share, and honoring our DIPG children.
(Activities are examples and no specific activity is guaranteed.)
