REVIVE: a long-term survivor's retreat
This retreat is for women breast cancer survivors who are 3 or more years post treatment. The survivorship continuum changes over time and therefore needs are often different for survivors immediate post treatment (0-2 years) than long-term survivors ( 3 + years). This retreat will focus on common issues faced by long-term survivors such as how to deal with long-term and late effects of treatment, body image changes, cognitive impairment, fatigue, sexual health, mental health, and chronic pain syndromes. This retreat will allow for meaningful discussions, provide opportunities to share experiences, enhance self-care, and build advocacy to help others.
