Are You 'Casting' Around for a Good Cause in 2011?

“It’s really healing. It’s the only cancer group that focuses on how to live a full, meaningful, delicious life once you’ve been tagged with breast cancer.” Reporter Candace Chase at Daily Inter Lake.com quoted Kalispell, Mont., resident Landis Vance, a breast cancer survivor and advocate of Casting for Recovery (CFR) in an article that tells a wonderful story of how a woman who just wanted to fish became a volunteer and organizer for her local CFR cause. According to its website, CFR is a national nonprofit organization founded on the principles that the natural world is a healing force and that cancer survivors deserve one weekend — free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace — to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure.
