“My goal for this weekend is to just let each other breathe and be real”
BRCA Break is a weekend filled with connection, laughter, outdoor activities, tears of joy, sorrow and bonding as a community, oh and of course healthy delicious food! All of the women in this group have shared in the journey BRCA positive. Powerful support from others who get where you're coming from is something truly special and magical.
When I joined the Instagram community, I met some AMAZING BRCA sisters. We quickly bonded over surgeries, complications and hard choices we were making. We started emailing each other for support and sending each other small tokens when someone was having a tough time. I decided that it would be great if we could all meet in person, so I organized this event. Not everyone will be able to be there in person but ladies from around Southern California are coming and one from across the country. We are planning a virtual hang out with some others who can't make it do to health issues.
“This weekend will be relaxing, healing and an annual tradition”
My goal for this weekend is to just let each other breathe and be real. We will do fun things but also allow space for grief. We have a great itinerary planned with lots of fun stuff but also time for relaxing and connecting. Saturday night will be a beach fire + dinner and Sunday morning will be a hike through gorgeous trails overlooking the Pacific. Brunch will be next! There will also be farmer's market trips, relaxing at the beach, pool time and kombucha tasting at a local Kombucha bar.
This weekend will be relaxing, healing and an annual tradition.
