A Journey of Courage and Hope for Women and Women who Support Them, a breast cancer retreat is designed for women living with breast cancer metastases and their adult daughter, mother, sister, friend, etc., who supports them through their breast cancer experience.
Confronting breast cancer can be a challenging undertaking for even the strongest relationships. Dealing with the chronic nature of Stage IV breast cancer requires endurance and hope, support and sharing for the survivor and her caregiver.
This weekend event is an opportunity for women and female caregivers to retreat from the routines of treatment and daily life to experience a program of individual and mutual healing and renewal. All 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.
“It is as if in listening and feeling the pain of each other, we are connected and empowered in a way that allows us to understand that we are truly not alone in this.” –Peggy speaking about stage IV breast cancer
The retreat is a facilitated program that offers time for discussion and planned activities in a comfortable setting. The focus of the retreat is on the personal journey of women and their female caregivers.
Attendance is limited to 12 survivors and their female guest. This free retreat includes meals and 2 nights lodging, use of facility and program. See back of brochure for exclusions for attending.
