Our Mission.

Image Reborn Foundation’s mission is to provide no-cost healing retreats to women diagnosed with breast cancer and to assist them in living rich and fulfilling lives.

Weekend long retreats are held in luxury accommodations most often in the beautiful, peaceful mountain setting of Park City, Utah. Typically retreats host 6-8 attendees and all meals, services and accommodations are covered. Survivors may attend at any time during their cancer journey and are invited to attend up to once per calendar year. Space is limited, advanced registration is required and we do collect a fully refundable deposit to hold each attendee’s space.

Why we do what we do.

We were founded in 1998 by Dr. Renato Saltz, a plastic surgeon who recognized that there is a need to emotionally heal and rebuild after cancer, and although women receive tremendous medical care throughout their cancer journey, their complex emotional needs often are unaddressed. Currently, there is an increased awareness of this gap in care and more cancer providers are exploring ways to integrate emotional support into their care plans as it is essential to the healing and overall wellbeing of all cancer patients.

Our Program.

Image Reborn’s renewal retreat program is designed and facilitated by a professional staff with experience in addressing the special concerns of women with breast cancer. Every retreat is focused on providing support and renewal in an informal setting, including specific retreats throughout the year to hold space for Stage IV, Hispanic, Young, and Adventure-seeking women. Our program is built around the following key components that address the emotional healing needed after the devastating impact a breast cancer diagnosis and medical treatment can have on women:

  • Medical – women have the opportunity to ask tough questions and get candid answers from experts in various fields of oncology
  • Emotional – PTSD, trauma, anxiety and fear can continue to plague survivors if they are not addressed. We offer ways to connect with tools and tips for how to manage emotional distress
  • Mindfulness – Incorporating mindfulness allows for wholehearted living
  • Physical Activity – options for physical activities will be offered and are geared towards all levels and abilities; exercise is one of the only non-medical healing alternatives that has been recognized to reduce re-occurrence of cancer.
  • Renewal – we give plenty of relaxation and downtime throughout the weekend to allow women time to reflect and receive well-deserved treatments to alleviate physical pain.

christine watson

christine-watson

mybody CEO Christine Watson brings a heritage of retail expertise and an exacting eye for style to the pioneering skincare brand, drawing on her extensive experience to offer medical skin solutions that women aren’t afraid to place prominently on their vanities.

Christine began her career as a buyer at Harrods in London, hand selecting the niche, cult beauty and skincare brands carried in the toiletries department of the luxe destination. It was in this position that Christine first met Philosophy founder and husband-to-be David Watson, crossing paths while launching his coveted skincare collection, Philosophy®, at Harrods. Christine eventually moved to fashion, curating the department store’s luxury clothing offerings and designing Harrods’ own label.

Upon relocating to Arizona years later, Christine brought her refined taste with her, opening a boutique purveying Europe’s chicest fashion and beauty imports. After five years of managing her boutique, Christine was ready to take her business savvy and sense of style to a bigger venture. When David introduced Christine to Therese Clark, Christine instantly saw potential in Therese’s mission and agreed to join mybody as CEO.

Having reviewed hundreds of products and brands in her capacity as Harrod’s Buyer, Christine developed a discerning eye and an instinct for game-changing products and brands. To find a brand concept and feel that truly spoke to her-as mybody immediately did-was reason to get behind the collection and help bring it to fruition. Identifying a space in the often over-serious medical market for a more approachable range, Christine worked closely with Therese to take mybody from idea to execution, refining the brand concept and aesthetic.

Drawing on her strong retail background as well as her personal experience dealing with medical issues, Christine has helped develop an unprecedented marriage of effective, medical-grade skincare and beautiful, approachable products that women want to show off, marking a dramatic departure from the existing offerings on the market. With Christine’s insight, mybody offers serious, targeted formulas in an enjoyable, experiential way, creating a collection that women can truly connect with.

Michelle Archibeque. Originally from Alberta Canada, Michelle Archibeque is a loving and devoted wife and mother to three wonderful children. After eleven years of being a homemaker and operating her own child care business out of her home, Michelle decided to start expanding her talents and looking for opportunities to learn and make an impact in others lives.

After being introduced to the Image Reborn Foundation in the fall of 2018 she knew right away that she wanted to take part in their admirable mission. After volunteering, Michelle started to learn all aspects of the facilitator roll and has been greatly affected and humbled by the strength and courage of the women she has had the opportunity to serve.

Michelle balances her work life by spending time trail running, skiing, white water rafting, camping, and most of all focusing energy into her passion, her garden. She loves spending time with her husband, laughing and playing with their children, and planning adventures that will create meaningful experiences for them to share. Michelle is also a talented cook and has made time to learn about health and nutrition.

As a facilitator Michelle brings a welcoming smile and open arms to the women who attend her retreats. Her main focus is creating a relaxing and welcoming space for women to let loose, get pampered, and feel comfortable opening up about their personal experiences. Michelle is truly grateful for her opportunity to be a part of a team that is making positive impacts on women’s lives and hopes to bring a fresh perspective and make a difference with her time and energy.
