Casting for Recovery Arkansas hosted its first retreat in September 2015 at the beautiful River Ridge Inn in Norfork, AR. Our retreats take women out of a clinical setting and into nature, where they can relax, share their cancer experience with other women, and learn the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. The retreats empower women with educational resources, a new support group, and fly fishing, which promotes emotional, physical, and spiritual healing – all at no cost to the participants.
Fourteen women are selected via a random lottery to attend each retreat. Women of any age and any stage of breast cancer treatment or recovery are eligible to apply.
