I apologize for this late notice, but I just found out Casting For Recovery (a national nonprofit support and education program for women with breast cancer is offering a free retreat for military women (veteran or active duty).
These retreats will provide medical and psychosocial sessions that will support women navigating issues related to their military and cancer experience. Fly fishing serves as an outlet for coping with the challenges of these topics and provides a simple, authentic connection with nature.
The first retreat will be held July 13 – 15, 2018 in Spruce Creek, PA and will service military women from PA, DE, MD, NJ, NY, OH, VA, WV. The second retreat for military women will be held November 9-11, 2018 in Starke, FL and will service military women from FL, AL, GA, MS, SC and NC.
Applications for these two retreats can be found by clinking this link. The deadline to apply for the July retreat is this Friday, June 1, 2018. The deadline to apply for the November retreat is August 31, 2018
Please pass this on to all military women who has had breast cancer or who knows a military person that has this illness.
I have had the opportunity to participate in this flyfishing retreat and I have memories that will last forever!
