I found out about Image Reborn Foundation from a support group for breast cancer. I jumped on the chance to go to the Retreat. Our rooms were fantastic, they served us yummy food, my bed was so soft and comfy, we learned Yoga, had massages and facials. We shared stories of our journeys and were we we going. We became friends and laughed a lot. It was great to get some answers to our questions from the founder of Image Reborn Dr. Saltz. He helped me see some possibilities for me dealing with surgery. He is awesome as is Keiko and Sheila. You guys ROCK!!!

Amazing program. Shelia and Donna are angels on earth. They helped me when I thought I could go no where else. I shared my story, laughed, cried and healed while being at this retreat. I have made life long friends and will forever be grateful for thier kindness.
I am a survivor
along with three other sisters and one sister who fought for six years with her breast cancer. Her passing was one of the hardest things I have gone through. After her passing, my younger sister, 37, was DX with breast cancer only a month after laying my sister to rest. I was DX a year and a half later. We are survivors and will fight to help anyone who asks and even though who will not.
I support image reborn in many ways. I share my story with others about my adventure with them. I attend their fund raiser and was a guest speaker at one. I am honored to be part of their program.
I see Donna and Shelia often and always hug and thank them for what they have given me. I smile brighter knowing I have their support when I need to fall back on it. They know my whole story and cried and laughed along side me never judging just holding a hand and caring.
I will always smile!
With all my heart,
Denine

My experience has changed my life. My dearest girlfriend Janet can attest to who I was before I went and who I came out as. It was an amazing experience and wish others to be touched by this organization.

Change nothing. They are amazing individuals who run, help and orgranize this program to meet everyone's personal needs and where they are in the recovery and life after breast cancer.

During my cancer journey I did not meet other Latinas who were batlling the deadly disease.....this sparked my curiousity on why, I didn't see them at different events we were invited to locally. In my question to educate myself with breast cancer and the resources of support I came across Image Reborn at the Young Cancer Survivor conference in Atlanta, GA in 2010. Once I came home I looked it up and signed up for the Latina conference. The experienced was great and the ladies I met had a lot to share, from how they dealth with breast cancer both physically and emotionally to their own personal beliefs.

Althought the retreat was very relaxing, my experience in meeting other Latina women battling breast cancer empowered me to look at different ways of approaching other Latina women when they are newly diagnosed.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31. I was internet searching for community support when i stumbled across the Image Reborn retreat and applied. I was initially rejected for the Young Survivors Retreat as it was already full. I was surprised and elated to receive an email a few months later informing me of an upcoming retreat and inviting me to apply. I was thrilled to attend a winter Young Survivors Retreat and had a wonderful time. Every detail of my trip was taken care of and exceeded my expectations. I flew into Utah earlier than the other group members and the foundation arranged transportation to take me to a location of my choosing for the afternoon and then the director picked me up personally and took me to the retreat house. The retreat house was phenomenal and I was overwhelmed at the luxurious comfort to which we were treated by generous donors. I really enjoyed the delicious meals by our private chef. The art journaling was a fun and moving activity. My favorite was, of course, the facials and massages. The comraderie of spending time with other young survivors was exactly what I needed to move into the next phase of my cancer experience - being a survivor. I am incredibly grateful to Image Reborn for providing me such a relaxing, and healing weekend!

I was lucky to attend a Young Survivors winter weekend retreat in Utah. It afforded me the opportunity to relax and connect with other survivors. I've kept in touch with several women from the retreat which has been great. Image Reborn is a wonderful organization and they truly pamper their guests!

I would expand these retreats to other areas of the country! I wish all breast cancer patients/survivors could have such a great experience! I flew from New Jersey to Utah to attend the retreat and wish I could refer other survivors to local retreats. I would also wish for more funding for this group so that they can increase the number of retreats they organize throughout the year.

The Image Reborn organization helped me so much. The weekend i spend with other women that were going through very similar situations was a blessing to me. It allowed me to let down my hair and just be myself. I didn't have to put on a face like i did for everyone else. Theses other women knew exactly what i was going through. The information sessions with the physicians helped a lot with my understanding of the continuing process with living and surviving breast cancer. Donna and Sheila made us all feel so special. My life was very blessed to have been able to attend the Image Reborn weekend for young survivors.

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.
