I was able to attend an Image Reborn Retreat in June 2011. This opportunity allowed me to, in a way, escape my real life. Even though I was with other breast cancer survivors, I could realize I was not alone in my journey and life isn't as awful as it seems when you hear the words 'breast cancer'. It was a nice reprieve from day-to-day life. I was able to bond with my sister survivors and be pampered and taken care of. I love the home we were able to stay in and I am grateful to those generous enough to donate the use of their home for these retreats. My favorite parts of the weekend were the yummy cheeseburger I was able to have at the club house cafe and the fun art journal we were able to start creating. There were a few times when I felt a little out of place, but I overcame those feelings by the camaraderie of the other guests and the compassion of the hostesses. I do wish my own events hadn't caused me to be so late, that I could've had a better room, but I did enjoy the experience and if I were ever invited back to attend, I would go in a heartbeat. I also want to do what I can to help the organization out. I would like to see a possible weekend event that involved spouses, significant others, or caretakers as well. They need a break just as much as a survivor does. I will admit I thought we were going to talk a little more about how to make ourselves more healthy, like with eating and follow-up treatments, etc. Overall, though, I am so happy I went, and I am happy I had the opportunity to go in the first place.

I would like to have had perhaps more options when it came to beverages and food. I don't drink alcohol or diet soda... I know the hostesses had a lot to take care of but there were a few moments when I thought they could have done things a little differently. Just following up to make sure everything was okay. They generally did this, but just a few little things here and there... Maybe I was expecting too much attention.

I am a young Mom and a TWO TIME breast cancer survivor. Image Reborn was a BLESSING to me in a time when i really needed support, relaxation and pampering! From the moment i reached out to them via email, to the moment i met the facilitators and spent a MAGICAL weekend with the group in beautiful Utah and up until the very last moment when they drove me back to the airport...i was treated like a princess! They are the most LOVING and CARING and NURTURING group of people i have ever met. They thought of EVERY detail and hosted the most amazing retreat. The gorgeous host home, the food/chef, the activities, the tears, the love, the support and the activities were SUPERB!! thank you Image Reborn!! I now have new young cancer friends and support to add to my "healing garden" of hope!!

I was treated to a free retreat to Park City, UT thanks to Image Reborn, which provides free retreats for breast cancer survivors. They flew me out, wined and dined me, and made us all feel like queens. I loved the wellness perspective: massages, healthy food options, etc. Afterwards my family joined me for a trip to Bryce Canyon. I would have never enjoyed this beautiful region and experienced the fellowship of other survivors without this wonderful organization.

The Image Reborn Foundation holds retreats for this who are going through or have been through cancer. The women who are in charge of the retreats are truly inspiring. They give up their time and provide resources hoping to help others through cancer. The resources they provided were great. It was helpful to hear other stories and to get feedback. I left with a new understanding of the direction I wanted to go with treatments and with new friends for support.

I think they just need more sponsors to help the organization grow. I feel a couples retreat would be great to help the spouse/significant other learn how to deal with cancer as well. I feel like their are so many resources for cancer patients but not for their family.

Once hearing about Image Reborn and being accepted into the program retreat, I was ecstatic to find out I could hang with others, who were exactly where I was. Financially, having tons of medical bills was a concern that was wiped away, because the retreat was 100% covered. What a blessing! The food, leadership support, friendships made was a priceless experience.

Stage IV Metastatic Cancer, once you've been tagged, you're tagged for life. Is it denial, when the oncologist states you are in remission, you think of yourself as cancer-free? Or perhaps it is a coping mechanism of the brain? Well, I have cancer. I am in remission. I will continue to seek out life adventures that make me smile, soothe my spirit and bring me joy, spend time with my precious family and true friends. All the while, asking God to use me to help others smile, soothe spirits and bring joy.

Make the retreat a day longer, so much to do and share, but not enough time in my opinion.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37. Going to an Image Reborn retreat was such a blessing. I was able to talk with other Thrivers and Survivors that were my age. It was amazing for me to meet these women that shared the same experiences. The retreats gave me courage, strength, knowledge and lifetime friends. I am grateful for this organization.

Image reborn allowed me to meet other young women going through breast cancer. For me it was improtant to meet people that had been through this and came out the other side!

The ONLY change I would make for Image Reborn would be to get this program as much funding as they need. Truly a life saving group!!!
