What is a vacation?

While many of us plan a week or two away from the day to day work that is our lives, our thoughts go to our pediatric brain and spinal cord tumor patients.  Their constant struggle to survive in the face of their illness makes us wonder what a vacation is like for them.  In some cases, the only real break they get is a day like Making Headway’s Family Fun Day where families get one day of fun, music, swimming, games and gifts in a beautiful garden setting.  For them, vacation lasts only a few hours, but it is one of the most important days of the year.
