For those who living with and beyond cancer, it is sometimes a struggle to hope again, to regain confidence and self love. A new travel company Travel Toward Wellness based in Seattle has been set up to focus on the needs of these women. Their current programmes include a weekend in the San Juan Islands, shopping in Tuscany and spa retreat in Sausalito, California – and more are planned.There are not many of us who have not been touched by cancer – my partner of 17 years died of breast cancer, recently another friend died, and today there was news that a well known NZ musician had died. Most of us are familiar with the idea of ‘The Bucket List” – well here is a company focusing on giving some opportunities to those have been touched by cancer.
Travel Toward Wellness is a women-owned travel company specializing in health and wellness travel programs for women living with, working through, and surviving a cancer diagnosis.

I should only be quoting things that I am very sure about for something as serious as recovering from cancer. I can personally vouch for the fact that yes, travel in itself has a curative effect on patients recovering from cancer. My aunt (maternal side) underwent a horrific experience with chemo and took upon extensive traveling with a bandana to hide her scorched scalp…she came back a refreshed, stronger person…just one more instance of the natural might that woman possess.
