Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats

Providing empowerment, sisterhood, and adventure to women of all ages and stages of Breast Cancer.

At Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats, women living after breast cancer move from surviving to thriving. We use challenge-by-choice activities and expressive/healing arts to create a supportive, inclusive, invigorating environment. Participants gain confidence, make new friends, find healing in the outdoors, and discover their own strengths in the recovery process.

 

“When I arrived, it was about me
and all my loss and anger.
When I left it was about us.
I came away
feeling stronger.
The women
made me strong.”
-- Rose

Essex Woods is tucked amidst 16 acres of white pines and oaks, less than a mile from the ocean and surrounded by 250 acres of conservation land providing a natural setting for relaxation, introspection and a sense of well-being.

Woodland and salt marsh trail hikes, expressive/healing arts sessions and relaxing with your "sisters" old and new are some of the adventures awaiting us at the 2021 Fall Retreat Weekend.
