Escape Recipients

Dawn's Experience


Dawn and her family went to Newport, Rhode Island, to enjoy whale watching, historical tours and amazing food.

“Thank you Life Is Good No Matter What for an amazing escape. It felt great to get away with my family and not have to worry about my daily battle!”

Jeffrey's Experience


Jeffrey asked Life Is Good No Matter What to send him and his wife Karen to the Grand Canyon to escape his battle with prostate cancer.

“I wanted to renew our love where we were engaged at the Grand Canyon 25 years ago. We had an amazing time visiting family and enjoying a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon! Life really is good no matter what! Thank you Life Is a Good No Matter What!”

David's Experience


Because of your generosity, David and Jean had a wonderful trip to Savannah this spring. They spent their time relaxing and taking in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the South. On top of all of the wonderful treatment that they received from the people in Savannah, a very special person from the Olde Pink House made the impossible possible. David and Jean had to cancel a fancy dinner the night before their return home, but they were surprised with an elegant lunch at the airport!

“It was a gift and a blessing to have this time away from all worries and responsibilities. People ask me about the experience and I tell them it was lovely, beautiful, wonderful, the most relaxing time we’ve ever had – and then I run out of words to describe how great it was! But they can tell – because I can’t stop smiling! – that it was healing in ways that can’t be measured.” – Jean

“Having the time away with just us was a blast from the past when everything was possible and our future looked bright. Being on the trip can only be describe as a heaven on earth with blue skies, green trees and grass, the hint of a cool breeze, and clear days with plenty of sunshine. I have a better understanding of the term southern charm. What an unexpected gift for us from “Life Is Good No Matter What” – Thank you!” -David

Kelsey's Experience


“It was so nice to not have to think about going to the doctor or being sick. As an avid Disney enthusiast with a background in theater, I truly believe that with faith, trust and pixie dust, anything can happen.”

Shanesha's Experience


In April 2015 Shanesha Escaped to California with her son and nephew to visit her sister and see the sites.

“I am so grateful for the organization Life Is Good No Matter What. It was amazing. We all needed that break – both the boys and me. I hope a lot of other people get to experience some of the joys I had.”

Raemalee's Experience


“My daughter and I had a wonderful time! It was an experience we will never forget. I can’t begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our manicures and pedicures, massages, luxurious hotel and food! Life Is Good No Matter What is such an amazing organization.”

Jim's Experience


“Life Is Good No Matter What treated my family and me like VIPs. I needed an escape and am so thankful to Life Is Good No Matter What. Our time in Amish country is something that will put a smile on my face forever!”

Terry's Experience


Terry enjoyed a limo ride from his home to The Diamond Grille in Akron, Ohio, with his mom, a close friend and partner. Pink Petal Florist from Akron supplied a beautiful bouquet of flowers for the occasion.

“I just don’t know what to say, it’s just beautiful, thank you so very much, I can’t say it enough, wow just so impressed, thank you!”

Lisa's Experience


Lisa and her husband Bill were able to create lasting memories in December while taking in the sun, fun, and bright lights of Las Vegas! They enjoyed a premium room with a view and meals at the beautiful Mirage Hotel and Casino, a night out at the Cirque de Soleil show Zarkana at Aria Resort and Casino, and sightseeing around the city to view the extravagant decorations for the holiday season.

“Bill and I would like to thank everyone at the Life Is Good No Matter What organization and everyone involved who made our trip to Las Vegas an amazing adventure to spend time together. We went to some great shows that words just don’t describe well enough. The sights and sounds of Fremont Street along with all the Christmas decorations were fantastic to see up close and in detail. Finally, the food was great and the breakfast at Paris is a must for anyone’s Vegas trip. Thank you again for the wonderful gift to spend time together.”

Cindy's Experience


Cindy’s escape was a visit to the beach with her beloved family.

“This time away allowed me to spend a special time with my family. I loved to capture special family moments to preserve for my family since we rarely are all together.”
