Ocean Lakes has partnered with Little Pink Houses of Hope on the retreats since they started in Myrtle Beach in 2011, welcoming about 400 family members over those years, Seay said. The retreats have all the aspects of what makes a great beach vacation, including eating at area restaurants, family photo shoots on the beach, games such as cornhole and, of course, some good ole’ rest and relaxation.

Little Pink Houses of Hope has 14 beach retreats scheduled for 2017. The Myrtle Beach retreat is set for Oct. 15-21 at Ocean Lakes; it's the only one in South Carolina. Other 2017 retreat locations: Emerald Isle, N.C.; Key West, Fla.; Lake Tahoe, Calif., and Gulf Shores, Ala., among others. About 1,000 breast cancer patients have applied to participate in one of the retreats, Seay said.
“Thanks for jumping in with your families to directly serve and become a part of the retreat week,” Patten-Coble said in the letter to Ocean Lakes. “We are truly blessed to be able to create hope together with Ocean Lakes!”
