My colleague Jean over at No Boobs About It has launched a wonderful new
program for breast cancer survivors.
Here is more information:
The Pink Time Outs Program provides women and men, who have recently
finished active treatment( surgery, chemo, radiation) for breast cancer,
with funded short getaways from all things breast cancer.
The Pink Time Outs© Program is about using short getaways to put closure
on the end of active treatment and facilitate the transition to life as a
survivor. The goals of this program are simple:
•A physical and mental break from all talk, sights and routines that
remind us of breast cancer
•The opportunity to feel refreshed in mind, body and spirit
•To enjoy a much-needed time out to recreate and participate in
•The freedom to think about something other than breast cancer, to begin
thinking about what comes next as a survivor.
The first funded getaway is April 2, 2013 at the Biltmore Estates in
Ashville, North Carolina. To see the details of the trip, please go to
The winner and companion will be chosen by lottery drawing.
The Biltmore Estates getaway is the first of many getaways planned in the
months to come across the U.S. and Canada.
