WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN US?

It's HARD to navigate your way through a breast cancer diagnosis, treatments, and then move on with the rest of your life.  We understand - we are survivors too.  In the 11 years since starting Lifting Hearts support group, we've had the opportunity to meet 100s of survivors, partner with them in their healing journeys, and help them create lives of happiness following breast cancer.  We want to help you too!

No matter where you are in your personal journey, it's so helpful to have a group of women going through it with you!

That's what we are here for, and this retreat will help you learn the way

forward as you move into THRIVING.

Join us and 100 other survivors as we learn, laugh, cry, and create TOGETHER.

I had the opportunity to attend the Lifting Hearts Retreat in Heber. It was such an amazing experience!!!  I was challenged in ways that I never would have been had I not gone to this retreat.  This was truly needed!!!  The women I met are amazing! I still keep in contact with many of them. I am forever grateful for the opportunity I had to see such strength and bravery all in one place!!!”

“Thank you so much for lovingly encouraging me to attend.  It helped me relax and realize that I deserve a break and that I am worth something.  That I did go through something hard, that I am strong and brave!  Thanks to all the sweet ladies who make this retreat possible, it is a wonderful blessing to many women who need to be reminded that they are strong and beautiful!”

“This has been such a soul uplifting weekend.  Sharing laughter, love and stories with all of these new “sisters” has made my cancer journey even more strong and special.  To everyone who worked so hard to make this weekend happen, may good things come back to you a hundred times over.  Your generous spirits allow us to feel like the beautiful, spiritual women that we are.”

Janet Wilkey

“Attending a Lifting Hearts retreat was life changing.  Going through breast cancer was hard.  I felt like people around me didn't understand a lot of what I went through, even though they tried.  At the retreat, I was around so many wonderful women that understood.  They knew and understood what it is like to go through cancer.  It was the first time in a long time I felt understood.

The healing that I experienced through different modalities, exercises, journaling, coloring, creating, expressing, talking, listening, laughing and honestly sharing will stay with me for the rest of my life. The experiences were rich and full of intention and love. Such amazing, beautiful women!  I am truly grateful to Lifting Hearts for the way that they selflessly honored, cared for, loved, included and changed my life for the better.

"The Lifting Hearts retreat...  was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. 

The ability to gather with others who are on the same path, or have been, is so valuable.

Kara, Colette, Bethanie, and their amazing board are all so full of love and compassion and joy, they truly do know exactly how to Lift Hearts!!  I will forever be grateful for them and the gift they gave me of being able to attend the retreat.”

Diane Jones

“The Lifting Hearts retreat that I attended was desperately needed at that point in my life! I had completed all my breast cancer treatment that put me in "survival" mode and I was beginning to be flooded with a lot of emotions related to that. I needed to talk to and hear from other women who had experienced the same things I had and I was richly blessed and left the retreat feeling calm, fortified, understood and loved!”

Francene Deegan

“Being able to attend the Lifting Heart's retreat in 2017 was very healing for me... being able to meet all those other amazing women who were battling with their diagnosis gave all of us the ability and the power to believe in ourselves. I learned so much from the sweet ladies who put this retreat together, not only taking time for myself but to to love myself and to love those around me and not take things for granted and not to feel guilty.
