IMAGE REBORN INC
June 29, 2011
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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
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!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
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.
