Hi all. This weekend I had the privilege of participating in a program called "Casting for Recovery".

To say I had a wonderful time is an understatement. This program is national, so I recommend you visit their website ( to see if there is a retreat near you. It is open to all breast cancer survivors and is totally free. They will teach you how to fly fish, but the weekend really isn't about that; I have absolutely no interest in fishing. You will feel like you have not a care in the world while you are there and it is an opportunity to meet some fantastic women. I highly recommend you go!

It's amazing to me that a program like this exists and is so unknown. Each and every one of us deserves to experience it. Go, go, go!
