CancerSurvivor Retreat: HealingWkd

$2,995 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 29 months
Last year, we brought 20 amazing survivors on a three day retreat that strengthened every part of them.  I never realized there is not a huge support network after you get the words "you're in remission." Most of these survivors now bald, physically mutalated from surgeries, are a totally different person. They have to figure out what's next for their new bodies, and their STRONG spirits. 

Help me bring more survivors this year. I know this is my dharma. You know my mom passed when she was 43 of breast cancer. This is my purpose... to help create new lives for the lucky ones who survived. Give however you can. I am so appreciative. Every $450 gets another retreater on this weekend experience of a lifetime. 

"Katie has a tremendous gift of empowering others to feel confident in achieving their goals. My self-doubt and insecurities no longer stand in the way of me accomplishing my goals.  I came back feeling rejuvenated and confident and with loving friendships."

"I went into the retreat feeling low after some life circumstances. The retreat made me shift my focus to myself and my heart. It made me really check in with myself and be completely honest with myself. It helped me get back to me. Katie B's spirit is unbeatable. "

"This retreat was amazing truly words can't describe you start with giving back at the orphanage and then learn to give back to yourself. I felt lighter and more connected to myself than I have been in a long time, if ever. Connecting with individuals on the same journey makes it all come together realizing, you are not alone and we all have similar fears and dreams. I would strongly recommend this weekend to anyone if you are the fence jump over and do it."

"I loved every minute of this retreat. I loved being put in a situation where strangers become friends. The workshops are the deepest parts we don't want put on paper or say aloud but those are the exact things holding us in life. I walked away from this retreat not only loving myself but with a whole new tribe that feels the same way. Katie has this gift of bringing together people from all walks of life and uniting them in the greater cause, self love! Everyone I met I saw the growth in just 3 short days! Wished I had come on earlier retreat!"

Hey team! I've updated this actual goal now to only $1500! That's how far away we are from our goal. We ran a great event at Spark Cycle on Friday that helped get another $1k. Thank you so much!
