Breast Cancer Action Nova Scotia is thrilled that Cabot Shores is planning a Good Health Festival fundraiser for our organization the weekend of July 8-10. Monies from the fundraiser will help with hosting an adventure and empowerment retreat for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Cabot Shores has been in association with BCANS for many years as a sponsor for our annual gala and we look forward to working with Dr. Paul and Barbara Weinberg on this exciting endeavour.
Currently, a breast cancer retreat is held annually in Tatamagouche at the Tim Horton’s Camp. Many Cape Breton women are not able to attend the retreat because of the distance and miss out on such a wonderful healing experience. Cape Breton has a high incidence rate of breast cancer and having a retreat on the island would provide many with the opportunity to heal through networking with other survivors, feeling empowered through nature adventures, learning stress release practices, and in general, helping them move from patient to survivor to thrive on their health journey.
If you have any questions, please contact me at (902) 465-2685.
