Berlin Horse Farm Provides Respite For Kids

BERLIN -- Several physical miles and a million symbolic miles away from sterile medical offices, needles and debilitating treatments is an idyllic horse farm in Berlin where dozens of kids battling life-threatening diseases have found a brief but joyful respite all summer, thanks to Believe in Tomorrow and two local girls who shared their love of horses and horseback riding.

The Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation offers children fighting disease and illness and their families a retreat in Ocean City from the daily grind of treatments and hospital visits and allows them to enjoy a summer vacation similar to that enjoyed by most families at the beach. Each week all summer, six families arrive at the Believe in Tomorrow House by the Sea on 66th Street for a week of fun in the sun and activities arranged by the Director Wayne Littleton and his staff including surfing, fishing, Coast Guard tours, mini golf and amusement park visits, for example.
