Who can apply to attend a retreat?
We are committed to social and economic diversity and have very few eligibility requirements subject to medical clearance for attendance:
• Women of all ages, who live in the UK & Ireland, who are at least three months after completion of treatment for early breast cancer (which may include; surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) are eligible to attend with medical clearance from their oncology doctor or GP. Women who continue to take hormone treatment or Herceptin are eligible to apply. All applicants must be current UK and Ireland residents and eligible for NHS treatment (UK only as a reciprocal agreement is in place between the UK & Ireland for those on short vacations).
• Women with secondary breast cancer are welcomed and encouraged to apply for retreat attendance with medical clearance from their oncology doctor or GP.
• To achieve a positive experience for all retreat attendees the needs of each participant will be assessed for retreat suitability.
