Growing Through Cancer
Transforming challenges into lasting change
Cancer Changes Your Life
The moment you're diagnosed, everything changes. Your reality becomes appointments, treatment schedules, and managing your energy. At the same time, you're trying to do and learn everything you can to fight this. It's all consuming, and it's exhausting.
And then things may slow down. You finish treatment. You're being monitored. It seems like it should be a relief. And in some ways, it is. But you've also been through so much.
It's understandable to be in this place. This place of in-between. Of not knowing exactly who you are anymore or what life may hold for you.
This retreat is an opportunity to explore those feelings, both alone and with others. It's also an opportunity to rest, recharge, and heal. Dr. Aleksandra Gasinski, ND has worked with countless cancer patients, and knows how important it is to give yourself the space to process your experience.
Take this time to do something for yourself.
Having cancer can be an isolating experience. Even with family and loved ones around, it can be difficult for them to understand just what you're going through. Sometimes it's difficult to express all of your feelings, because you worry about burdening them. You try to stay strong instead.
Our retreats allow you to speak your truth. We bring people together. People on their own cancer journeys, who know what it's like.
We talk about having cancer - about uncertainty, fear, death, hope, resilience, and changing relationships. Allowing yourself to openly share the challenges and triumphs of living with cancer is one of the most important steps you can take towards healing - mind, body, and spirit.
"Cancer is big. It's scary and it's messy and it pushes us to our limits. But we also get to find out just what we're capable of."
