JOHN & MARGARET: BREAKAWAY
Below is a note we received from one of our families after they participated in our Breakaway program. In partnership with the Milwaukee Hilton, our Breakaway program allows Broadscope to offer a free night stay to parents in our Respite program to enjoy an evening of relaxation and rest.
I wanted to send you a short note thanking you, Broadscope, and the Milwaukee Hilton so much for the Breakaway! Having a child with special medical needs can really impact the ability to have alone time with your spouse. Our dates usually consist of lunch when possible; we don’t often have help in the evenings for our daughter. It has been years since we have gone away together for even 24 hours.
When I saw the email offering a Breakaway evening, I jumped at the chance. You made it so easy to sign up. The fact that the hotel was in such close proximity to our house, we felt comfortable leaving for a night. First, the hotel staff was amazing. When we checked in we were given a beautiful corner room. We had no plans, so the concierge was very helpful giving us some ideas. We were able to get to the Art Museum and then to a local play just down the street from the Hilton. To sleep through the night without medical alarms going off was a blessing.
Thank you so much for giving us a “normal” night!
John and Margaret
