Apply ONLINE  using the link below. Please note that to be eligible to attend a retreat, you must be a breast cancer survivor (at any stage) and apply only to a retreat in your service region (see below).  At this time retreats may only be attended once so we may serve as many women as possible. 

There is no cost to participants to attend, other than the expenses involved in traveling to and from the retreat location and the cost of a fishing license.

Participants will be selected at random from all eligible applications received in our office by the retreat sign-up deadline.

If you need to print out an application form, email us at info@castingforrecovery.org for a printable form.

Be sure to CONTACT US with any questions!
