Reservations are being taken for the First Annual Breast Cancer Survivor’s Cruise to the Bahamas, hosted by Denise’s Breast Cancer Survivor’s Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization based in Stormville, NY. Sponsors include Denise’s Travel Agency, Hopewell Junction, NY; Topical BioMedics, Inc., Rhinebeck, NY; and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), Miami, Florida.
Guests depart from Miami on March 25, 2013 aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s elegant “Norwegian Sky,” with ports of call at Nassau Bahamas, Grand Bahamas Island, and Great Stirrup Cay Bahamas before the ship returns to Miami on March 29th.
The “Cruise for a cause” is raising funds to help breast cancer patients and survivors, their families, and caregivers through Denise’s Breast Cancer Survivor’s Foundation, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Assistance in Healthcare, a charitable foundation headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
"I outlived and survived my diagnosis and want others to know there is help,” says Denise Robinson, founder of Denise’s Breast Cancer Survivor’s Foundation and Denise’s Travel Agency and herself a breast cancer survivor. “I know by personal experience that everyone who is experiencing this illness is facing hardships on multiple levels in some form or fashion whether it is emotional, physical, and financial or a combination of them all. I am grateful to be in a position to now offer help, support, and comfort to others in need to get through their journey. That is why I have created Denise’s Breast Cancer Survivor’s Foundation, and why I am pleased to offer this life-affirming ‘Cruise for a cause.’”
The keynote speaker on the cruise is Lou Paradise, president and chief of research, Topical BioMedics, Inc., and inventor of the Topricin line of natural biomedicine pain relief and healing creams. Mr. Paradise will be addressing pain management and the roles nutrition, supplements, exercise, and hydration play in health, healing, and wellness in a lively and interactive workshop.
Open to the public, the cruise is offered to men and women who are currently receiving breast cancer treatments, breast cancer survivors, caretakers, families, friends, and anyone who simply wishes to enjoy a relaxing vacation knowing they are, at the same time, helping individuals who are coping with cancer. Activities include a welcome cocktail party, workshops, guest speakers, and other special group functions, with plenty of free time for enjoying the tropics. “Come join us as we celebrate life!” says Mrs. Robinson.
There are a range of special price options, starting at $410 for an inside cabin, $450 for an ocean view, and $699 for a balcony. Prices are per person based on double occupancy, and include cruise fare, meals, group activities, port charges and fees. Reservations are open until October 25th.
