Shannon and Dave know what it's like to go through the anxiety and pain of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.  They found themselves comforted by Nature.  They have created an experience for people with cancer to help them find comfort and inspiration in the beautiful woods of North Carolina.

"After our own experience with Shannon's breast cancer in 2003, we became aware that surviving cancer requires not just physical stamina, but ALSO time to process the many emotional and spiritual challenges it brings.
"Together we have created a place where people diagnosed with cancer come to deal with the difficult aspects of cancer, meet others and find strength.

"Our motivation is to bring together people who want to further explore their cancer journey, focusing on living more fully and authentically -  mind, body & spirit.  Personally, we are strong believers in giving back, simplifying, laughter, friendship, and spending time in nature."

Mike and Joyce speak with Shannon and Dave about how they developed the concept of Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats.
