A group of eleven vivacious breast cancer survivors and their supporters participated in the first annual Breast Cancer Retreat at Cabot Shores. The retreat was sponsored by BCANS, Cabot Shores and the Good Health Festival Society of Cape Breton Island.
These women knew how to have fun! and how to stretch their limits (i.e. hiking much longer than they thought they could or participating in a night walk in spite of anxieties of all sorts).
Cape Breton women from the Cape Brestoners’ Dragon Boat group easily mingled with city women from Halifax, created good cheer around the dinner table and the bonfire, made their own pizzas in Cabot Shores’ woodfired outdoor pizza oven, and participated in group Qi Gong, auricular acupuncture and mindfulness meditation. New friendships were forged and there’s talk about forming a BCANS satelite on Cape Breton Island
