CASTING FOR RECOVERY ANNOUNCES FREE RETREAT WEEKEND
FOR WOMEN BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS
Casting for Recovery (CFR), a national non-profit support and educational program for women
who have or have had breast cancer, will hold a weekend retreat in New Jersey on June 7-9, 2013 in
Clinton, New Jersey. This retreat is open to women of all ages and in all stages of breast cancer treatment and recovery who live in New Jersey and is offered at NO COST to the participants.
The CFR program is unique in that the curriculum incorporates the elements of fly-fishing to promote
physical and mental healing. It is an opportunity to experience a true respite from familiar
surroundings and everyday routines. The casting motion provides a gentle exercise for joint and soft
tissue stretching. Fly-fishing provides stress-relief and promotes a sense of calm, while the social
interactions offer women a chance to share, laugh, and rejuvenate.
Since 1996, CFR has served over 4,500 breast cancer survivors nationwide, with the help of 1,500
medical, psychosocial, fly-fishing, and alumni volunteers.
The number of participants is limited, so please call now.
The deadline for submitting your request to attend the retreat is March 29, 2013. Applications can be submitted online at www.castingforrecovery.org.
Casting for Recovery is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Support for this program is received
