With Gratitude

Give Pink   2019

We are thankful to our donors and foundations for their generosity in support of our mission to support, empower and enhance the quality of life for women of all stages of breast cancer through adventure based support opportunities in a retreat environment.

  • Your donation helped us reach more women, getting them out to play in nature while connecting with each other.
  • Your donation provided scholarships to those who otherwise could not attend our Breast Cancer Adventure Retreats.
  • Your contribution assisted our program to remain strong, empowering women to discover their own strengths as they move from surviving to thriving after breast cancer.

With gratitude, you have “changed lives” and “deeply transformed” the lives of women living after breast cancer!

Special thanks to My Breast Cancer Support for their Scholarship Fund donations.

My Breast Cancer Support delivers tangible, practical, and emotional support to breast cancer patients on their individual paths to wellness and healing in the Greater Maine and NH Seacoast area.  The BJBBCR Retreats have been an integral part of many patients’ journey to wellness.  They provide women with the environment to share their experiences and continue on the path to their new normal.  We are proud to have them as part of our resource network.

We thank the GWENDOLYN ELWELL FLANAGAN FOUNDATION for their continued generosity in awarding charitable grants to The Betty J Borry Breast Cancer Retreats in support of our mission and the healing power of nature.

In appreciation of the generous grant from the "Pledge the Pink" Foundation 

The FABULOUS FIND is a non-profit resale boutique located at 139 State Road Kittery, ME that benefits local community non-profit organizations in the Maine and New Hampshire Piscataqua Region.

We are honored to have been selected as one of the non-profit organizations for the February 2019 donation made possible by the donation and sale of designer clothing, jewelry, home accessories, furniture, music and books. Thank you The Fabulous Find for your donation which will strengthen our adventure retreats for women living after breast cancer.
