Casting for Recovery – Texas May 13-15, 2016
OMA therapist Mary Liebermann, a volunteer staff member with the Casting for Recovery (CfR) Texas program, attended the annual Central Texas retreat held at Joshua Creek Ranch in Boerne, TX. Fourteen women diagnosed with breast cancer were randomly selected to attend this unique retreat where they are able to talk about issues impacting their lives with fellow survivors and healthcare professionals; learn the therapeutic sport of fly fishing; take nature walks; experience restorative yoga; and receive a chair or hand and foot massage. CfR retreats last two-and-a-half days and 100% free for participants.
“The women who attended this year’s retreat were simply incredible. They were so willing to share their experience and be there to support each other. At the end of the weekend they left with new friends, new coping skills, and felt renewed and empowered….and they had a great time catching fish!”—–Mary Liebermann, LMT
This November, CfR-Texas will be piloting a new retreat exclusively for women with Stage IV/distant metastatic breast cancer. See https://castingforrecovery.org for more information about Casting for Recovery.
