Hello Members,

Recently, we received a large box containing many boxes of flies to support our program, Casting for Recovery. The flies mean so much to CFR and especially the participants. Your efforts are helping bring light to their lives where their journey with cancer may sometimes be dark.

With the help of people like you, we are holding 30 retreats in 22 states and we hope to do many more.

On behalf of all of us at Casting for Recovery, Thank you.

Nice to hear from you, and thanks for taking the time to post here. It will mean a lot to those who participated to see these sentiments.

Take care, and expect another package next year. :)

I'm delighted, and proud, to say that while I have been working hard to raise money for the PMC (as you all know ;) ), in parallel my father has been canvassing foundations to contribute to CFR.

Today, I learned that his efforts generated $5800 in donations to this fine organization!
