Casting For Recovery

This is a wonderful organization that I am thankful to be a part of....

Casting For Recovery

Casting for Recovery® (CFR), a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, supports breast cancer survivors through a program that combines fly-fishing, counseling, and medical information to build a focus on wellness instead of illness.

To Fish is to Hope (c) 

 2-1/2 day retreat program, offered at no cost to participants, is provided by trained volunteers.
Since 1996 Casting for Recovery has made a difference in the lives of women at any age and stage of treatment and recovery from breast cancer - one woman at a time.

Casting Instruction, CFR 2009 Retreat

 The dynamics of fly fishing provide a healing connection to the natural world, relieving everyday 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 similar experiences to meet, learn a new skill and gain a respite from their everyday concerns.

This was my 2nd year volunteering as a Fly Fishing/Casting Instructor.  Here are some photos from our most recent retreat [Sept 26-28].

It has been a busy last few weeks.  We are now into October *Breast Cancer Awareness month* 
[...more on that to come].

I'm a big fan of Etsy!  You can find the perfect gift for just about anyone. Here are some of my favorite shops...

Fun jewelry and very affordable...

Handmade knitted accessories... Scarves, scarflettes and fingerless gloves [my favorite] 
And we can't forget about my mom's little shop (and it is little, she needs to add the rest of her Christmas card collection)
It is hand stitched with variegated thread.
Do you have any favorite Etsy Shops?
