Duke Health News 919-660-1306

DURHAM, N.C. -- The Duke Cancer Patient Support Program is holding its first SeaSide Yoga Retreat for women who have breast cancer or who have recovered from breast cancer.

The retreat, founded by breast cancer survivor Jean Costa, will be held at the Trinity Center in Salter Path, N.C., April 27–29.

During the three days, yoga classes and health-related workshops will be led by certified yoga instructors and health care professionals. The goal of the retreat is to help breast cancer survivors build new friendships, have fun and become equipped with new tools to help them heal their body and spirit.

Fees for the program range from $170 to $230, depending upon when a participant registers and the type of accommodations desired. The fee includes lodging at the Trinity Center, all meals, yoga instruction and evening programs. A limited number of scholarships are also available to those interested in attending. The retreat is limited to 50 participants.

In an effort to make the retreat available to anyone who wishes to participate, the Duke Cancer Patient Support Program is seeking financial assistance in either monetary donations or gifts-in-kind. All donations are tax-deductible, and a company's or individual's generosity will be prominently displayed on promotional material and at the event.

For information on how to register or provide financial assistance, contact Lyn Lamont at the Duke Cancer Center Patient Support Program at (919) 684-4497.
