New Life After Cancer is creating a handbook for breast cancer survivors that encompasses the information taught in all of our workshops and retreats. For a limited time, you can follow along as we post chapters under “resources”. When the book is completed, it will be available as ebook or print on demand through Amazon.
Four large, epidemiologic studies show associations between significantly better survival after breast cancer in women who did not gain weight after diagnosis and treatment.

Designed for small groups of like-minded survivors, centering around a particular issue, in an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and enjoyment, we believe that “one size does not fit all.” Thus, each retreat is different, matching the unique needs of the group through specially designed courses.
Our workshops merge discussion of the scientific literature and hands-on activities related to subjects that have been proven to improve outcomes after cancer treatment. We provide the tools and information to guide the transition from medical care to self-care. Workshops meet weekly for 4-6 week courses or as day-long seminars.
