Retreat for Military Women with Breast Cancer

In 2019, CfR will be holding two regional retreats for military women—veteran or active duty—who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. Medical and psychosocial sessions support women navigating issues related to their military and cancer experience, such as treatment options, side effects, PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and depression. Fly fishing serves as an outlet for coping with the challenges of these topics, and provides a simple, authentic connection with nature. CfR retreats are provided at no cost to the participants, who are selected via a random lottery. All meals, lodging, supplies and equipment will be provided for attendees.

SPRING 2019 – Texas Military Women
Our April 2019 retreat is open to Texas women veterans or active duty women in any stage of treatment or recovery from breast cancer.  This retreat is inclusive of all 5 service branches (including National Guard and Reservists), race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity.
