Wind River Cancer Retreats
Shannon Carney and David Pschirer are co-founders of Wind River Cancer Retreats and Wellness Programs here in the foothills of western NC. The primary mission of Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats & Programs is to teach survivors a variety of ways to deal with the emotional stress of cancer and improve their quality of life. As a small grassroots nonprofit, all retreats and outreach programs are free of charge to survivors, and have been since 2007!
Their contributions to all aspects of wellness in the midst of cancer are far-reaching.
- Wellness Retreats that allow people to deal with some of the non-medical challenges of cancer at no charge to participants
- Programs for individuals and groups to help them reduce stress, increase their energy levels, and better manage the uncertainties of cancer
- A safe, supportive and healing environment where people dealing with cancer can discuss their fears & anxieties and learn from other survivors.”
