    Open your eyes toward survivorship and recovery. Take advantage of the opportunities that now are available to you. You have survived cancer. Take advantage of the opportunities and spend a weekend at a wellness retreat, an outdoor program, walk a labyrinth, or pamper yourself at a spa alongside other survivors. Take a trip, step out of your comfort zone, or take a step into a more comfortable place.
