Programs & Services
for women at all stages of the journey
Our signature programs, Wellness Retreats are 3-4 day journeys that transport our participants out of the everyday challenges of coping with cancer into a peaceful environment that provides them with opportunities to explore holistic healing modalities while developing a sense of community with other women along the same path.
These programs give women an opportunity to share in each other’s concerns, celebrate milestones and fortify a sisterhood bond in their collective journeys through cancer.
Integrative Therapy Workshops
Education is a vital part of the holistic model we embody. Living Beauties are introduced to various healing modalities that beautifully complement their traditional treatment plans.
Resources and Support
We are proud to offer a variety of supportive services to our Living Beauties, including financial assistance through partnerships with other organizations and referrals to additional services through our resource site and library.
Our Living Beauties share from the heart
“I feel re-energized with an infusion of love that is unconditional. I cannot thank you all enough for the gift of FFLB and our activities. My experiences with Living Beauties have been the most impactful in my healing process. I know that for a fact. I would not have been open enough to meet my husband and get married had it not been for my FFLB sisters’ love and the heart opening activities offered by the retreats.”
“I’ve been a Living Beauty since 2011. I came into this group in pain and with much anxiety about what I had been through, and about what I would be dealing with for many years to come. I am a survivor of stage II breast cancer. While I am finished with treatment, my body is completely foreign to me now. Foundation for Living Beauty teaches us to honor our own bodies. The yoga retreats have helped me to regain strength and flexibility. The sense of community we feel when we’re together helps us to feel whole again. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for helping to send us on these retreats. You have given us an amazing gift that we cherish.”
“Since joining my first retreat, I have gained my self-esteem and happiness, attributes of who I was prior to cancer… It transformed me in so many ways that I never thought or dreamed of… I leave here with hope and optimism.”
“The devastation I felt when I was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma Breast Cancer was immeasurable. At a time when I needed it the most, I was surrounded by women who understood what I was going through and who accepted me without judgment. Living Beauty has allowed us to forever unite as sisters, sharing a bond where words don’t have to be spoken. Their vision has enabled so many of us to not only feel beautiful at a time when we don’t feel that way, but stronger in a way we never felt before. We become whole once again… I am humbled to be among these women, and I am honored to be a Living Beauty.”
