Our world shattered when Lexi passed. We never imagined finding joy in a life without Lexi's physical presence. One of the things that has helped us survive those most painful moments of grief has been travel and the ability to get some distance from our daily routine and triggers. These trips were made possible by our incredible friends and we hope to offer the same support to others. One of our closest friends who gifted us funds to take a trip, knowing that we have always loved traveling and hoping it might help with our healing. We spent our first Christmas after Lexi passed with our dear friends who also lost their son to Blau syndrome. They opened their home to us and helped us through a very difficult holiday. Our family was also gifted a stay in Costa Rica at a tropical paradise called Lapa Luna. This incredible family shared this piece of paradise with us - we arrived there as strangers and we left as family. The trees were full of howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots etc and at the night the sky lights up with fireflies. Being somewhere new gave us a chance to reflect, to bond and to grieve together.
Since those early days we have had friends share their vacations with us, families of friends have shared their homes with us, friends have gifted us horse riding adventures. Felix had a wish fulfilled to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. These are the experiences that bring us light in these darkest of days. These experiences are something we will always be grateful for, and we believe that as other families go through grief, perhaps they too might experience some comfort from a grief getaway. As a part of Lexi’s legacy we would like to help facilitate this. We have started offering our home to grieving parents and would like to encourage others to do the same.
If you have a hotel room, a holiday home, an Air BNB, a timeshare or would like to fund a stay for a grieving family please let us know. Another option would be an experience for a family or a child- horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, skiing, skateboarding etc.
If you are a family struggling with grief who might benefit from some time away together, or an experience please reach out as we would like to see if we can help facilitate.
