LFSA's first couple's retreat was held in July 2016 at the Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona. There were 14 participants in attendance. Each of the couples included someone with Lupus. The weekend included Reiki therapy with Marsha Drozdoff, mediation and communication circle with Amanda Freed, a sangria challenge, vision boards, and rest and relaxation.
Lani, Bob and I would like to thank you for including us in the Couple's Retreat. It was a wonderful time, and the resort was marvelous. We truly enjoyed every aspect of the activities. I especially enjoyed the Rieki session. To be able to meet others who are coping with Lupus, and to see the support that our spouses offer, makes it easier to know that we are not alone in this fight. We made some new friends and were able to spend time with old friends. What a wonderful time, and I hope that the Foundation can continue to offer programs like this to others. Thank you again for including Bob and me, we had a wonderful time.
