Reel Recovery - Midwest


My name is Jeremy Southworth and I am the Midwest Coordinator for Reel Recovery.  Reel Recovery is a non-profit organization that conducts free retreats for men living with all forms of cancer.  Reel Recovery has been conducting Midwest Retreats in La Crosse, WI  serving participants from WI, MN,  IL and IA since 2012 by providing  3-days of fly-fishing instruction and guided "Courageous conversations" to men battling cancer at no cost to the participants.  These retreats give the participating men the opportunity to share their stories, learn the art of fly-fishing and to form a bond with men experiencing some of the same hardships that they are. 


Reel Recovery was formed in 2003 by a group of fly-fisherman in honor of their friend Stewart "Stu" Brown who was battling brain cancer.  They witnessed the benefits of fly-fishing for Stu during his treatment process with cancer and decided to start an organization that would provide the same opportunity for other men battling cancer.


The mission of Reel Recovery is to help men in the cancer recovery process by introducing them to the healing powers of the sport of fly-fishing, while providing a safe, supportive environment to explore their personal experiences of cancer with others who share their stories. 


I humbly ask that you consider sharing our information with anyone who you feel would benefit from attending our FREE retreat.  The 2019 Midwest Retreat will take place on September 4, 5, 6th


If you have any questions or would like more information please feel free to contact me.  You can also visit reelrecovery.org for more information.  


If you have time or would like there is a short 10-minute video that does a very good job of explaining the beginning of Reel Recovery, who we are and what we do.  Thank you for your time and I look forward to hosting our next retreat in September!
