Metastatic Breast Cancer Patient Retreat (Journey of Courage & Hope)

Due to the recent coronavirus pandemic, this event has been postponed. Please check back later for more information.

This 3-day/2-night program is free for patients to attend and is sponsored through a grant offered by the National Breast Cancer Foundation. All attendees have a private room, private bath, excellent meals (there is a chef!), in a relaxing environment that encompasses over 300 acres. Registration is limited so if interested please email Lillie Shockney at

*We do request that if you have attended a prior Hopkins metastatic breast cancer retreat to not request to attend another. We want to make this program available to as many patients across the country as possible, those who are Hopkins patients as well as those receiving care elsewhere.
