Casting for Recovery (CfR) is a national nonprofit organization that provides free retreats for breast cancer survivors of any age and in any stage of treatment and recovery. CfR’s unique program combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. The retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discovered renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature. Why fly fishing? The gentle, rhythmic motion of fly casting can be good therapy for the upper body for women who have had surgery or radiation as part of their breast cancer treatment. No fishing experience is needed to participate in or benefit from the CfR program.
The CfR Colorado program will hold its next retreat on the Western Slope Oct. 14-16 at the Redstone Inn in Redstone, CO. The deadline to apply is Aug. 19. If you have questions, please contact the CfR National Office at 888-553-3500.
