Women suffering from breast, ovarian and gynecological cancer in the area of Yorktown will soon be able to benefit from a new wellness retreat.

Support Connection has recently announced its plans to hold the retreat – an event which will hopefully help many of the women who are suffering in the area.

The retreat is set to take place on Saturday, May 16th.

Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights will host the event, which will be running from 10am til 3pm.

Support Connection has announced that the event will be in two parts. The section in the morning will discuss how healthy meals can be made for the entire family. This will aim to show women how they can use these different meals to boost energy, not only for themselves but for their families too. The cooking session in the morning will be run by Sheila Emery Murphy and Karen Rigney, two holistic coaches.

Using the food prepared during the morning cooking sessions, the women attending the retreat will enjoy lunch together.

The second half of the retreat will take place in the afternoon, and will be led by Robin Perlmutter and Marlene Stager. The two counselors from Support Connection will give a talk to the women about mindfulness and control. This will hopefully address issues such as feeling out of control of your own life and being unaware of things going on round you.

However, there are only twenty space available for this event, so it is advisable to get in touch early if you want to book a place.

Registration before the event is required, and women interested in attending the retreat can contact Barbara Cervoni on 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290 in order to register.
