Jodi Holmgren knows what it’s like. She’s battled breast cancer and understands what it puts women through.So it’s with that firsthand experience that Holmgren, executive director of Image Reborn Foundation, leads the organization in its mission to provide help for women fighting the disease. Image Reborn Foundation gives women no-cost customized relaxation retreats — held primarily in Park City — offering them a much-needed break from the everyday stress of their lives.

Holmgren talked about her own experience of attending a retreat. She was a single mom working to support a family, still trying to manage life while fighting cancer. For her, the retreat was a sanctuary, a respite from it all.
