Image Reborn Foundation provides no-cost healing retreats to any woman who has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer. 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. Because space is limited, advanced registration is required and we do collect a fully refundable deposit to hold your space. Also for this reason, beginning in 2020 priority will be given to those who have not yet had a chance to attend an Image Reborn retreat before. Alumni will be asked to join a waitlist and can attend as space becomes available.
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 to fight the physical component of their illness, their complex emotional needs often go 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 for the healing and overall well-being of all cancer patients.
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. Our program is built around the following components that address the emotional healing needed after the devastating impact a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery can have on women.
