Innsbrook Corp. to build respite home for cancer patients

Posted

Innsbrook Corporation, in partnership with Faith Through Fire, will host a ceremonial groundbreaking event to kick off construction for a new respite retreat home being built for breast cancer patients in Innsbrook’s newest development, “Treehouses of Talblick.”

The ceremony will take place on Saturday, Oct. 30, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the construction site located within the gates of Innsbrook Resort. The event will mark the first steps of building a home of healing for those enduring cancer treatment.

Faith Through Fire is a nonprofit organization in the St. Louis area whose mission is to reduce the anxiety and fear that breast cancer patients feel and replace it with hope and a path toward thriving. The organization offers patients informational resources and support through a peer mentorship program, a monthly podcast, partnership with Build-A-Bear, and now, their partnership with Innsbrook Resort, to provide a close-to-home place of respite during treatment.

“When I was undergoing breast cancer treatment, my husband surprised me with a weekend getaway and I could have never imagined how restorative it would be,” said Beth Wilmes, founder of Faith Through Fire, “Partnering with Innsbrook Resort will help bring our vision to fruition and provide all patients the opportunity for respite during the treatment process.”

In partnership with Faith Through Fire, Innsbrook has offered the use of a specifically-outfitted treehouse to the organization. The 1,600-square-foot home will feature three bedrooms and two baths, two separate decks, and a bird’s-eye view of the 146 acres of terrain below. The area offers its own security entrance and is in close proximity to multiple lakes, the Tyrolean nature trail, and Charrette Creek Commons which includes a zero-entry pool with swim lanes, lazy river, children’s playground, fitness center and outdoor amphitheater.
