Journey Forward

An enlivening retreat of self-discovery and inspiration - Thriving with passion, purpose & promise

Addressing the Forgotten Side of Cancer Care

Tunnel Vision can set in with a new cancer diagnosis- the doctor, the patient, and the patients’ loved ones all focus exclusively on the treatments that aim to keep the patient alive as long as possible- as it should be. But, the cancer story doesn’t end when treatment does.  Once survivors leave the cocoon of medical care, they may feel cast adrift with no safety net, experiencing a myriad of emotions. 

Forward-thinking healthcare professionals have become aware that many cancer patients are often still significantly distressed following completion of treatment. They have realized that “The Missing Piece” in cancer survivorship is a post-treatment plan that includes honoring the whole person and addressing their quality of life. To address this “Missing Piece”, Emergence provides a survivorship retreat program that engages and empowers survivors to create and embrace vibrant, new paths for living, going beyond treatment to caring for the heart and soul.
