Casting for recovery
Women from throughout Iowa in various stages of breast cancer survival attended a retreat in Decorah over the weekend, part of “Casting for Recovery,” a national program that provides an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather in a natural setting and address quality of life and survivorship issues with other women in similar circumstances. Above, participants practice their new skills at the Decorah Fish Hatchery. For more photos and information, see upcoming issues of Decorah Newspapers. (Photo by Julie Berg-Raymond).
