Through a generous grant, Stoughton Hospital Foundation is able to cover the cost of registration for women at all stages of breast cancer to participate in Breast Cancer Recovery’s Infinite Boundaries Retreats. This was made possible by Judy Gryttenholm, a breast cancer survivor, who reached out to various organizations to receive funding. Gryttenholm, who attended the retreat herself, wants to enable other women to share in this “life-changing” experience. “Women don’t want to spend the time or money on themselves,” explains Gryttenholm. “Our hope is with this grant program more women will get the support they need. They are not alone. There is hope.”
Infinite Boundaries Retreats are based on the belief that the journey to recovery and healing involves the whole woman, mind and body. Retreats are designed to help women find inner strength and experience the hope needed to live each day beyond the boundaries of breast cancer. Survivors have the opportunity to discuss the latest issues surrounding their breast cancer, gather information, experience and enjoy the company of new-found “sisters” in healing environments.
“We are grateful for this grant and the ability to help more women recovering from breast cancer find comfort in these retreats,” shares Laura Mays, the Stoughton Hospital Foundation Executive Director. “We encourage women at any stage of their breast cancer recovery to reach out to us to learn more about this program.”
Women at any stage of breast cancer who live in the Oregon, Edgerton, Evansville, Stoughton, McFarland, Cottage Grove, Brooklyn, Deerfield and Cambridge areas are eligible to receive funding to cover the cost of the Infinite Boundaries Retreat.
