On Saturday, September 29th, Casting for Recovery had the pleasure of being a part of the 2018 Living Beyond Breast Cancer Conference: Sharing Wisdom, Sharing Strength in Philadelphia, PA. Living Beyond Breast Cancer, is a national 501 nonprofit organization headquartered in Bala Cynwyd, just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. LBBC works with women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their caregivers throughout their experience of diagnosis, treatment and recovery. This year’s conference had over 470 attendees, 44 exhibitors, and 39 states were represented.
Our team had the chance to speak with women who attended the conference from all over the country, even Hawaii and a few from Puerto Rico. Several CfR retreat alumnae joyfully came by the CfR table to share about their CfR retreat experience! Retreat alumnae from the Colorado, Eastern PA, MidAtlantic, Florida, South Eastern Regional, Oregon programs shared fond memories from their retreats and encouraged women visiting the table to apply!
