Weekend of Hope!
There's no better time to celebrate spring than to enjoy a weekend in the crisp, clean air of Stowe, Vermont. It's a weekend for cancer survivors and their families to come together to celebrate the gift of life. There are workshops, keynotes, and fun activities for the entire family. This is a once-a-year event (May 2-4, 2008), but the inspiration you receive will last the rest of your life.
It was four years ago that I first attended with my husband and it not only started me on my healing journey from cancer, but allowed me to pursue my passion for writing. The friends I've made there have become friends for life. This year I will be presenting, "Writing to Heal" and "Writing to Publish." Last year, one of the workshop attendees informed me, she just got published in a magazine for cancer survivors. How exciting to know so many are sharing their stories of survival and allowing others to catch a glimpse of hope!
