Casting for Recovery is a national organization dedicated to helping breast cancer survivors. In approximately 40 states, CFR offers 2 1/2-day fly fishing retreats at no cost to participants. Here in New Jersey, this innovative and caring organization runs two retreats every year. Breast cancer survivors enjoy fly fishing instruction and learn post-cancer care in a safe, secure, and fully supervised environment. It offers women an opportunity to learn how to fly fish, exercise impacted chest muscles, connect with other survivors, and have a lot of fun. Each retreat ends with several hours on a beautiful New Jersey river where each woman gets to fish. Each participant is assigned a River Helper (an experienced fly fisher) who is there to guide and help her to the degree that she wants help. By being one-on-one with experienced fishers, the women feel safe and secure as they probe the waters in search of their finny quarries!
