Posted: 06/25/2012 - Santa Rosa - When a child has cancer, the entire family is affected. All the treatments and doctor's appointments can create a lot of stress for the patient, parents, and siblings. That's why Lighthouse Family Retreat gives families dealing with childhood cancer a weeklong getaway to help restore their relationships, and their hope. The Atlanta-based organization works with communities along 30A to host 12 retreats every year. Many of them take place at Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach.
