The Lung Cancer Initiative is excited to partner with Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats for the 3rd year to host a Lung Cancer Survivor Wellness Retreat on August 19 - 22, 2021. You and your fellow survivor participants will get to know one another better and explore creative ways to feel more peaceful and rejuvenated, and HAVE FUN!
This year the retreat will be offered virtually with an optional in-person components. There will be many live interactions, including Healing Touch (COVID-safe!), Tai Chi, Nutrition Tips, Forest Bathing, and meaningful connections with other lung cancer suvivors!
This retreat is open to North Carolina Lung Cancer Survivors (both in treatment and out) and is designed by survivors, for survivors! Internet will be necessary, and a Wellness Goody Package with everything you will need for the retreat will be mailed to your home in advance! Many of the activities are self-paced. And the schedule will allow for survivors who are working to still participate!
Here from past retreat attendees about their experience...
“Wind River's retreat format is fantastic. Cancer can suck out your life, happiness, hope, and focus. Wind River blew all that back my direction and gave me a new family. Lots of Love to staff and facilitators. Thank you!”
“This experience made me see my cancer story with fresh eyes. To see that my story doesn't have to be about the past suffering but can be focused on my present recovery and sharing my story of survival with others.”
“I enjoyed starting my day with Cheryl, Tai Chi Mike and my fellow survivors. It gave me an extra boost and laughs. You can feel the warmth from everyone.”
