Review for Team Survivor Northwest, Seattle, WA, USA
The best thing that came out of going through my journey around cancer is finding and participating in the Team Survivor NW Hiking Group that meets once a week for 6 months out of the year. It has been healing for me these past 5 years to be out in nature, stretching my lungs and legs, breathing in the beauty of the wild and its fresh air while being with women who have gone through the experience of facing one's mortality in a real and raw way.
The group is very well organized, and the team spirit has made hiking in so many beautiful trails both safe and accessible for me. When it comes time to start up hiking in the spring after our winter hiatus, I am reminded that this group is one of the important tribes in my life that I am a part of, and there is a feeling of coming home.
