A Journey of Courage and Hope for Couples
A Journey of Courage and Hope for Couples is a breast cancer retreat designed for women living with breast cancer metastases and their spouse/partner.
August 5, 6 and 7, 2016
Confronting breast cancer as a couple can be a challenging undertaking for even the strongest relationships. Dealing with the chronic nature of Stage IV breast cancer requires endurance, hope, support and sharing.
This weekend event is an opportunity for couples to retreat from the routines of treatment and daily life to experience a program of individual and mutual healing and renewal. Couples will share their journey with others on a similar path. Ideas will be exchanged about the challenges and struggles as well as ways of coping and finding hope in the present. The retreat is a time for respite, reflection and sharing.
The retreat is a facilitated program that offers time for discussion and planned activities (i.e. journey of women and their spouse/partner, yoga, labyrinth walk, massage) in a comfortable setting. The focus of the retreat is on the personal journey of women and their spouse/partner.
This free retreat includes meals and two nights lodging, use of facility and program. Attendance is limited to 10 couples and excludes those who have attended a prior Hopkins metastatic breast cancer retreat.
