Pink Time Out

This is an amazing opportunity from my colleague Jean at No Boobs About It for someone who has recently completed active treatment for breast cancer. Please see the details below.


Christmas in New York City will be a 3-day NYC getaway for a woman who has
recently completed active treatment for breast cancer and a companion. The
getaway will include a stay at a luxury hotel in mid-Manhattan, tickets to
Radio City Holiday Show, breakfasts, and dinners at elegant restaurants.

This "Pink Time Out" getaway is being sponsored by my former students at
the Allen School for Health Sciences, Brooklyn, NY. Please read all about
it at

The Christmas in NYC recipient will be chosen through a lottery drawing.
The lottery will be open for enrollment October 1st and close October
31st. The lottery drawing will be on November 1. Any woman who has
completed, or will complete active treatment between October 1, 2012 and
October 31, 2013 may enroll in the lottery. For more information, visit

Why a "Pink Time Out"? It’s about getting away from all things breast
cancer, putting closure on months of active treatment, and easing the
transition to life in survivorship!



Amazing New Program for Survivors - Pink Time Outs

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
normalizing activities

•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.
