A Leading Breast Cancer Quality of Life Program 

Casting for Recovery's program combines counseling, medical information, and the therapeutic sport of fly-fishing. Our two-and-a-half day retreats are offered at no cost to women at any age and stage of breast cancer treatment and recovery. Casting for Recovery is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

We provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn to fly fish, "a sport for life."  Just as important, we offer an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun.

Our weekend retreat incorporates counseling, educational services and the sport of fly fishing to promote mental and physical healing.

Founded in 1996, Casting for Recovery has been offering free retreats across the country to help women move forward in their recovery.  We rely on local volunteers and organizations to support our community based retreats.

The retreats provide an avenue for social support and group interactions, reducing the feeling of isolation many survivors might have.

The dynamics of fly fishing provide a healing connection to the natural world, relieving every-day stressors and promoting a sense of calm.  Fly fishing techniques provide a gentle exercise for joint and soft tissue mobility.

The retreats offer a forum for women with simi-lar experiences to meet, learn a new skill and gain a respite from their everyday concerns in a natural setting where well-being can flourish.
