ARCH Retreat (Achieving Recovery from Cancer to Health) June 12-14, 2015

Group Picture '14

The ARCH Retreat has been designed to benefit young adult childhood cancer survivors (18-30) and connect them with each other which will improve their social lives; support them with their medical and vocational issues; and assist them with any after care concerns that may arise.  This year the focus was on sharing their stories to improve on emotional issues, fertility, sexuality and nutrition.  As well as workshops, the participants were also offered a unique challenge of high ropes and zip lining.  Each survivor had the opportunity to push themselves to do something they would never do outside the retreat or push themselves to a place they were before cancer entered their lives.  This unique retreat experience for young adult survivors provided the opportunity to connect and receive support from their peers that is still needed despite finishing treatment of cancer.
