Lonakana is a special retreat dedicated to women and children battling cancer. It will provide a peaceful environment to promote healing and brighten spirits at no cost to its guests. Managed by a team of professional caregivers and compassionate volunteers, Lonakana Retreat will offer its guests the chance to rest, relax and make memories. Classes in yoga, meditation, pottery, and jewelry design will be offered at the guest's request. While the majority of the retreat's services are focused on women, designated weekends in the summer will be customized for terminal children and their families.

Corporate donations and sponsorships will pay for the cost of operations, however fundraising is needed to cover the cost of the 64 acre property. The cost will also cover the complete construction of three furnished, handicapped-accessible guest cottages. Each cottage can sleep 4-8 guests. If you are part of a business or corportation that would like to contribute, please contact the main headquarters for additional information (web link below). Cottages can be purchased in honor of a loved one or as a gift from your company.

The Lonakana Retreat will be structured as a division of the The Portable Playhouse , an extremely successful certified 501c3 non-profit organization serving 22 hospitals and cancer centers along the East Coast.

For additional information, contact founder, Maryann Corey at beadlady6@gmail.com.

"May all who enter as guests leave as friends."

I would like to make this donation in the name of my sister, Laurie Whelan, who lost her battle with cancer last year. I hope this project brings joy and relief to those struggling every day with this horrible, horrible disease. Can you use donations of beads????
