Military Women with Breast Cancer
Casting for Recovery is dedicated to serving military women who have received a breast cancer diagnosis. In 2020, we are focusing our efforts on a national outreach plan to reach more military women and support them at our 57 retreats nationwide.
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. Medical and psychosocial sessions support women navigating issues related to their cancer experience, such as treatment options, side effects, stress and depression. Fly fishing serves as an outlet for coping with the challenges of these topics, and provides a simple, authentic connection with nature.
If you know a military woman (active duty, veteran, reservist) who has or has had breast cancer, please share Casting for Recovery and encourage her to apply.
If you have questions, please reach out to Susan Gaetz at the contact info listed above.
