Ovarian Cancer Retreat

Turning the Tide Ovarian Cancer Retreat

In October 2012, a dream was realized for two dynamic ovarian cancer survivors: Anne Tonachel and Robin Bray. Their dream was to provide a restorative retreat for other ovarian cancer survivors in the northeast. When the amazing Kennedy family of Camp Kieve in Nobleboro, Maine provided the retreat space (in honor of a family member with ovarian cancer) this restorative retreat was born.
The Beth C Wright Cancer Center in Ellsworth Maine has been very supportive in making this retreat a reality and a success.

We honor Robin Bray’s legacy and salute Anne Tonachel’s untiring efforts to keep this retreat an annual event. Your tax deductible donation will help to make that happen.

I was 24 when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and when doctor’s in Machias found a 11cm tumor located in my chest. As a recent college graduate and a newlywed, I was diagnosed 10 days after moving to Machias. The Beth C. Wright Center has helped me in many parts of my cancer journey. I have attended the Machias Be in Motion Cancer fitness class, support groups and have made so many lifelong friends through the center’s events and programs. Anybody looking for support, friendship, encouragement, and hope can turn to the Beth C. Wright Resource Center. The staff and volunteers are wonderful and are ready to help anybody with the effects of cancer on the human life.
