Review for Image Reborn Foundation, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending the retreat

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.
