When you first heard the words “You have breast cancer” your life was changed forever. Physically, emotionally, spiritually…one discovers how profoundly her outlook has been altered.

Betty Borry heard those words, felt the fear and frustrations. Wanting to understand and move beyond these feelings, she brought women of all ages and stages of breast cancer together to share a weekend of adventure, group support and sharing common experiences. Since 1995, Adventure Retreats have connected women who are on the same journey of living after breast cancer.
"I am still in awe of this weekend. Never in my life have I experienced such nonjudgmental, unconditional love in a room full of strangers that I now consider my extended family. Thanks to each and every one of you for a most remarkable time." -Adventure Weekend participant

"Adventure was calling... I wanted to connect with others to do healthy activities away from the noise of 'cancerland.' My voice came back and I took risks." -Fall retreat participant
