Breast Cancer Recovery Foundation, Inc.
August 15, 2013

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!
