Families from all over the southeast gathered at Wind Mark Beach in Port St. Joe for the Blue Skies Ministries retreat. The retreat is set up to help sick children and their families enjoy laughing and playing to escape the worries of hospital visits and cancer treatments.
Melinda Mayton is the founder and CEO of Blue Skies Ministries and she knows the struggles that families face with pediatric cancer. Melinda has been a nurse 25 years and says taking care of kids with cancer is an amazing experience and she thinks it's a great honor to be able to help.
