The mission of Casting for Recovery® (CfR) is to enhance the lives of women with breast cancer by connecting them to each other and nature through the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. The retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discover renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature. CfR retreats are open to women with breast cancer of all ages, in all stages of treatment and recovery, and are free to participants. On a physical level, the gentle, rhythmic motion of fly casting is similar to exercises often prescribed after surgery or radiation to promote soft tissue stretching. On an emotional level, women are given the opportunity to experience a new activity in a safe environment amongst a supportive group of peers. The retreats also provide resources to help address quality of life issues after a breast cancer diagnosis.
