Best Reason To Head To Texas

The best reason to head to Texas is not to clear brush with W. It is to attend Planet Cancer’s Re-Orientation Retreat. Planet Cancer is a great young adult cancer organization, which has been known to talk about vomit and dating in the same breath. I have spent years scouring the country locating young adult cancer resources and this organization is the cat’s meow.

At the retreat you’ll enjoy rock climbing, movies, good food, and the company of great people who know what it is like to be bald and have track marks up their arms for reasons other than heroin. Their FREE retreat is for 18-25 year olds who have or had cancer. It will be held in Temple TX, October 31st – November 2. Not only is the entire retreat free, but they also offer free travel scholarship funds to get you there. Click here to apply.

Feeling shy and want a preview of what the Planet has to offer you? Visit – the young adult cancer version of my space where no subject is off limits. warning: it is addictive.

Have any of you ever been to PC retreat? What was it like?

    I just got back yesterday from the 26-39 year old one – it was very cool, but I think a little more laid back than the younger one – more of a spa setting with a focus on relaxation. Meeting other YA survivor is what it is all about though.
