Programs: The breast cancer recovery foundation's flagship program, infinite boundaries, is a four-day wellness retreat for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Designed by breast cancer survivors for breast cancer survivors, each retreat features a unique mixture of healing approaches, including discussions on sensitive topics, creative arts, and outdoor recreation. There is healing in nature and retreats are held in beautiful locales. Women who attend infinite boundaries retreats are in all stages of breast cancer. Some are newly diagnosed while others may have been treated for breast cancer years ago. Women ranging in age from 24 to 77 and from more than 26 states have attended these retreats. Seven infinite boundaries retreats were offered during 2014.
the annual sharing the knowledge conference is designed for breast cancer survivors, caregivers, family members and friends, women with a family history of breast cancer, certified nurses, nursing students, radiologic technologists, and health care professionals seeking information on breast cancer treatment, management, and survivorship resources.
I volunteered for a retreat for women breast cancer survivors. What I saw the first day were a group of women with many health issues, who seemed disconnected. What I saw the last day of retreat was a group of empowered women with renewed spirits. A wonderful transformation had taken place for these ladies. They were given the room and atmosphere to talk with other survivors. A chance to know that what they were feeling wasn't crazy that other survivors were going through the same thoughts and issues. They discussed what had worked for them and together they figured out alternative solutions to what ever affected them. They had time to walk with nature, seek solitude if they wanted it or to share with others. They ate healthy meals, did activities at their own speed and choice. They had FINALLY took time out from their busy lives to focus ONLY on them. if you are a breast cancer survivor (no matter what stage of your journey that you are in) you have to attend a retreat to understand the transformation that takes place!
