Manchester, VT—February 8, 2016—Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering support and educational retreats for women with breast cancer will hold a weekend retreat at the Redstone Inn, Redstone, Colorado, October 14-16, 2016. The retreat is open to women of all ages and in all stage of breast cancer treatment and recovery, and is offered at no cost to participants.
The mission of Casting for Recovery is to enhance the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing.
“We are so excited to announce a Colorado Western Slope Retreat to service the women in this area. This will ease the distance between a participant and a retreat, and allow more women to experience healing and perhaps go home with a new fun and exciting hobby to enjoy.”
