TONI ABBEY | ONCOLOGY NURSE NAVIGATOR | MARCH 1 2017
As with Blueprints of Hope’s vision of taking individuals experiencing cancer into nature, the Colorado program for Casting for Recovery was started as a way to take women away from the clinical setting. It is here is where they can relax and share their cancer experience with others who have had the same experience, and also learn the therapeutic and healing sport of fly fishing. The retreats also offer counseling, education and are provided at no cost to participants. In 2017 there are three Colorado retreats being offered. All are at the North Fork Ranch in Shawnee: June 2-4, September 8-10, and one on October 6-8 which is specifically for those with Stage IV Metastatic breast cancer. What a wonderful gift to our communities. Coming from a Montana Girl, there’s nothing more meditative and healing than fly fishing on the river. These retreats fill-up quickly. If you are interested, please register soon at Casting for Recovery.
