This weekend, Glacier Anglers in West Glacier host the second annual Montana Casting for Recovering retreat, which aims to give breast cancer patients a relaxing, therapeautic experience.
Participants, who can be in any stage of breast cancer, learn to fly fish and also receive counseling services from professionals.
Learn more about the event and sign up at the Casting for Recovery site.
A fly fisher/reconstructive surgeon founded the Casting for Recovery event in 1996 in Vermont. The non-profit's mission is "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."
