An empowering weekend for Breast Cancer Survivors

Our retreats are offered several times a year to breast cancer survivors in York Region. The unique inspirational and empowering weekend is created for breast cancer survivors who have completed their active treatments, whether that was last year or 10 years ago. The retreats are designed by breast cancer survivors for breast cancer survivors. Each of the retreat is taking place in a beautiful natural setting and provides holistic education through an interactive program.
