Review for River Discovery Inc, Boise, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

River Discovery saved my life. I was feeling so depressed, physically challenged, and wondering how I could continue to live with it all. I have a rare stage 4 cancer with no treatments known to work and outlived my prognosis. My body was tired from all the surgeries and drugs we did try to keep things at bay. Then that phone call came from River Discovery...I was chosen to take a one week river trip with other survivors. After the euphoria of being chosen wore off the fear set in. How could I do it? Would my body cooperate? What if, what if, what if. The trip was life-altering. River Discovery has in place the medical staff, emotional support, and trained river guides from the company that provides the trip. There was 18 of us from all over, young to old, in remission to active disease, physically fit to barely walking and we persevered. I found the strength inside myself again out on that river to come home and be the me I needed to. Without River Discovery I would be a fraction of who I am. There is no better non-profit out there.....they help patients, families, widows, and survivors. The whole community of those that unfortunately get touched by a cancer diagnosis. Their programs of river trips, local paddling groups, retreats, and get togethers make differences in lives. Thank you River Discovery.
