A sense of isolation when dealing with cancer is very common, making connections with others who are living similar circumstances is truly priceless. Our annual winter retreat offers a supportive, welcoming getaway for our young adults and their supporters. These weekends allow you the time to escape the pressures of appointments, treatments and everyday life and instead, to rest, relax and rejuvenate in nature. We also offer a variety of seminars led by our staff and health care experts, which include topics such as finding balance, body image and sex, chemo fog and how to deal with the fear of recurrence. Our participants even have the opportunity to do some meditation and yoga.
Our unique retreats are for young adults living with metastatic or advanced cancer. We provide an opportunity to get together in a beautiful chalet one hour from Montreal. The warm atmosphere and intimate setting provides a getaway for 48 hours to connect with others who understand exactly what you are going through. Not only will you have time to rest and relax, there also are discussions about issues specific to those dealing with advanced cancer. Our retreats are offered every two months and are by invitation only.
