Retreat for Breast Cancer Survivors
February 28-March 2, 2014 Click here for Registration Application*
“When life throws you lemons, make lemonade!”
Program Description At this retreat, guests are given time to consider the impact of cancer on their lives and to reflect upon both the difficulties and the potentials that exist as a result of it. Participants will explore what it means to have healthy minds, bodies and spirits in the midst of living with cancer. Experience renewal, shared journeying and encouragement among people who understand what you’re going through because they are on the same road. At the end of the retreat, we hope participants emerge with renewed perspectives and energy.

COST: $397 per person
Don’t let cost keep you from attending! If you could cover some – but not all – of the cost, have no fear! Filling out the form linked to this page will alert our partner organization, the Pink Lemonade Project of your level of financial need, and scholarships will be made available. Pink Lemonade is happy to give them so please ask!
*Registration “Application” – What’s that about?
Our survivor retreats are customized for people at different places in their cancer journeys. The reason we have you “apply” rather than completely register is so that we can make sure to match you with the right group.
When you click the link above, you’ll go to a form that asks you to enter your name, email address, phone number, and the best time to take a phone call. Within a few days, a retreat facilitator will call you, ask a little about your cancer journey (how long since your diagnosis, current and past treatments, etc.) and answer any questions you may have about the retreat. If you both conclude that this is a good fit, the facilitator will notify Menucha to send you a full registration form. If this retreat won’t be a good fit, you may choose to tell us that you wish to receive alerts about future groups that might better suit your needs.
Thank you for your interest in our retreats!
