The ripple effect
At each Casting for Recovery retreat, every participant is asked to toss a stone into the water to help release her fears or worries. The ripples from all the group’s stones join together into one giant swell of support.
The healing ripples of Casting for Recovery can only spread with help from you.
Since 1996, we’ve helped over 5,600 women reach toward hope and healing. Yet the need continues to grow. Today, more than 500 women will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Women come to us every day to ask about attending a retreat and volunteer groups inquire about bringing the CFR program to their communities. We need to build our capacity to help them.
