Thriving Beyond cancer retreat is a 2 night 3-day retreat at the Oregon Coast. It gives women the opportunity to talk to others experiencing the same emotions and similar circumstances. These women find others to validate their thoughts and feelings. There are many concerns but one that survivors express across the board is the fear of reoccurrence. Some find they actually get emotionally & physically “stuck” from this fear.
This retreat gives them the tools to face those fears and proactively move forward. It is designed to help women embrace what they have endured and give them the power to decide what their future looks like; it allows them to live life more fully.
Sharon Henifin, Co-founder of Breast Friends is the facilitator of the retreat.
