REVIVE: a survivor's retreat
Date:
Register
 

Breast cancer changes everything. Most people who have been through the experience describe two lives: Life before breast cancer and life after breast cancer.

Even those who have finished treatment with a good prognosis are troubled with a number of thoughts: How can I stay healthy post-cancer? Who am I now? What are my new or renewed priorities? How can I help my loved ones understand how I feel?

During our retreats, survivors explore what it means to have a healthy mind, body and spirit in their new post-cancer life. The experience is designed to foster personal renewal, facilitate a shared journey with other survivors, and forge bonds of encouragement among people traveling the same road. Participants tell us they leave our retreats feeling inspired with a personal self-care plan and new friends for support along the way!

Retreats have long been considered a time apart from one’s normal routine, a time to reflect and renew. As a Revive retreat guest, you will be given time to consider the impact of cancer on your life and to reflect upon both the difficulties and the potentials that exist as a result of it. You will explore what it means to have a healthy mind, body, and spirit in the midst of living with cancer. Experience renewal, shared journeying, and encouragement among people who understand what you’re going through because they are on the same road. At the end of the retreat, we hope you emerge with renewed perspectives, ready to to jump back into your daily life feeling revived. Each Revive retreat is led by two licensed oncology social workers to provide guidance and counseling in a relaxing, soothing atmosphere surrounded by nature and overlooking the beautiful Columbia Gorge.
