Simplify Travel Planning for Spring Break~ Amazing Cancer Moms

Just because you are a mom with cancer doesn’t mean you cannot travel for spring break. Instead, this is the time to take a break from your cancer. Leave it behind and reconnect with your family and YOU.

The key to traveling with cancer is to keep it simple.

My family and I take a spring break after the hockey season to rest, recharge the batteries and to thaw from the long Minnesota winter. It is a break we all forward to taking every year.

The big question is: How do I take the stress out of traveling with my family when I have cancer? Keep it simple.

Following are my Top 5 tips to simplify your spring break travel:

  1. Find an easy travel destination

My family decided a direct flight is the way to travel vs. a vacation with multiple legs or driving. The multiple legs and driving can be exhausting. Also, it is more likely a flight leg may be delayed or cancelled. We chose Puerto Vallarta as a flight destination. It is a simple 3 hour and 50 minute flight.

  1. Reserve a hotel/resort that speaks to your soul
  • A boutique/quaint hotel on the beach.
  • A beach where the family can swim, toss the football, and I can walk.
  • A room with a balcony that overlooks the ocean.
  • A sunset.
  1. Pack lightly

Think in 3’s:

  • 3 T-shirt’s
  • 3 undergarments
  • 3 long sleeve shirts
  • 3 skorts
  • You get the idea.
  1. Make a list of “must have’s” for your trip
  • ORGANO coffee: Reishi mushroom
  • Travel packs of Collagen
  • Travel packs of Green Superfood
  • Bone broth protein bars
  • Bag of raw nuts
  • Siete chips
  • Water bottle
  • Alkaline drops
  • Travel yoga mat
  • Coola sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Visor: allows head to soak up vitamin D

  1. Each family member packs their own suitcase.
  • My hubby and I decided to travel when our kids could pack their own bags.
  • Each boy is in charge of their carry on bag. After the boys are packed, they ask us to check it. No problem!
  • Leave beach toys behind. Purchase boogie boards, beach toys at local store. Donate to locals/orphanage/school when depart.

Take a vacation from your cancer diagnosis. Surrender to the rhythm of spring break and allow your body to heal. You, your body, and your family will love you for it!
