Retreat 2023

By Lourdes Heras

One day we wake up,

and life as we know it has changed.

We now look in the mirror

and see someone different.

A new person

that early on we may not recognize.

And what one day we may have taken for granted,

are the precious little things

we are glad to wake up for every day!

What used to bother us… we now realize are very silly things.

Each day we wake up,

we are thankful for a sun,

a moon.

Think about our new sisters, and the brother…

we have now

and can talk with about your feelings.

I know I am glad I found you SBC (Laura & William).

I am sure everyone here is glad too.

No one can understand us exactly like you do!

Although remote is how we began.

This process for all of us has brought us closer

Distance does not keep us apart

Whether you are joining us

on an English or Spanish TNT

You know you have a shoulder to lean on, or even cry.

SBC I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation

thank you for your commitment,

transparency and integrity.

Thank you for always striving for excellence.

Thank you for fostering trust and giving us hope!

Surviving Breast Cancer provides breast cancer support, events, and webinars at no cost to you! Whether you are looking to gain more knowledge on a particular topic or meet up with other breast cancer survivors, we have something for everyone. 


Our standing appointment on Thursdays is for all stages. We also host specific breakout groups once a month for specific stages and subtypes such as Metastatic breast cancer, and Inflammatory Breast Cancer, etc. 


The Book Club meets the first Sunday of every month at 11 am ET. You are welcome to join each month or pick and choose your month based on your availability and the book we are reading. 


Through art, writing, and other creative modalities, we hold the power to manage our stress, make sense of our now, and relax into moments of stillness. 


Free, monthly, online classes in restorative yoga, yoga for breast cancer, and Zumba.
