Casting for Recovery-Arizona began in May 2003 with a retreat in the heart of the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. The Arizona Program has held 14 retreats to date, serving close to 200 breast cancer survivors from all over the state of Arizona. Fourteen women are selected via a random lottery to attend each retreat. Any woman who resides in Arizona and has received a breast cancer diagnosis is eligible to apply.
Our breast cancer retreats take women out of a clinical setting and into nature, where they can relax, share their cancer experience with other survivors, and learn the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. Our retreats also include counseling and medical education and are provided at no cost to the participants.
The Casting for Recovery Arizona Program receives financial and volunteer support from many private individuals, fly-fishing clubs, businesses and organizations. In particular, we would like to thank Bikers for Boobies and Two Gals Events & Promotions, whose very generous support over the years has sustained our program.

Bikers for Boobies donates $10,000
On January 4th, 2015, Bikers for Boobies presented the Arizona Cancer Retreat Program of Casting for Recovery with a $10,000 donation check to support their 2015 retreat for Arizona women surviving breast cancer. The event was held at the Dirty Dogg Saloon and checks were presented to various non-profits supporting the Arizona cancer community. The funds provided were raised during the Bikers for Boobies annual ride in October.
Bikers for Boobies is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit charity that provides cancer awareness, education, and financial resources to Arizona residents battling all types of cancer.
Many thanks to all the riders and the following event organizers and sponsors:
Arizona Fly Fishing Clubs
Members of Arizona’s fly fishing clubs have been extremely supportive of the CfR Arizona program over the years. We would like to thank them for their generosity, both financially and in volunteer hours. Their financial support and willingness to share their love of fly fishing with the women attending our retreats means a great deal to all of us.
Your generosity is making a real difference in the lives of Arizona women who have experienced breast cancer. On behalf of all the CfR AZ volunteers, and especially the women we serve, THANK YOU!
Casting for Recovery relies on the enthusiasm and support of its loyal volunteers to plan and staff our retreats, as well as conduct fundraising events. Volunteering will enrich your life and the lives of others with new hope, new skills. Click HERE for an application!
