Incredible Getaway for Cancer Journeyers (at a very reduced price)!

Walking through cancer is a journey…so whether you’re 20 days in or 20+ years out of treatment (or anywhere in between), this incredible getaway is just for YOU! (And if you haven’t been diagnosed personally, please share this great opportunity with your family and friends who have.)

The 240-acre Oaks Retreat Center near San Diego, CA is the perfect place to find the restoration and rejuvenation we all need – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Join NY Times bestselling author BOB GOFF,  musician-cancer survivor TIM TIMMONS, comedian-magician TAYLOR HUGHES, and the person-with-the most-cancer-survivor-friends, ME  🙂  as we offer hope, humor, and healing for the journey…unlocking what’s inside and releasing the YOU the world still needs! (And God wants to use!)

At this getaway, you will be poured into and surrounded by inspirational people in a safe environment with others on a cancer journey–who understand your journey like few rarely do. You will have plenty of opportunities to connect with one another or simply to be alone.

There are stunning views to enjoy, hiking trails, pickle ball courts, a swimming pool, cozy nooks in the cafe (complete with a fireplace), rocking chairs throughout the campus, and carefully crafted experiences to help you unlock where you are on your journey and what you need to thrive along the way. (Horseback riding and massage therapy are available for an additional charge.)

The cost includes two nights’ lodging, meals, snacks, and all the retreat sessions. Thanks to special funding, those costs are one-third to one-half of the usual price for a three-day Oaks Retreat with Bob Goff! (A few scholarships also are available for those with financial needs.)

It’s been almost 33 years since my cancer diagnosis and I still consider myself a cancer journeyer living in its shadow. But I’m  so grateful to be finding God’s light to lead me on the way. I would love to meet or reconnect with you June 5-7 at The Oaks Retreat Center and walk some of your journey with you.

Space is limited, so sign up today using this link:  Unlocking YOU

Blessings of HOPE,

    Dear Lynn, greetings from Christchurch New Zealand. How I would love to join you on this retreat, I have been diagnosed with a recurrence of lung cancer, what a devastating disease we are faced with. Unfortunately the drug Tagrisso I take is not funded here in NZ, please pray for the many in this country who desperately need this drug, I could be flying over to join you all on this amazing retreat if the financial burden we are now under wasn’t happening.
    I am 69 yets old with 3 gorgeous children and 5 grandchildren who I love being with, along with my beloved and patient husband of nearly 46 years.
    I am reading Peace in the face of cancer and rereading 50 days of hope. I hold onto God’s amazing love and hope I can have as I know that only He knows the number of my days.
    I am praying for a blessed time for all those who attend this retreat, may God bless you and the ministry of your books and glorifying His name.

    1. Dear Maaike,
      Thank you so much for taking time to write and share a little of your story with me. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be not to be able to get the drug you need to take. So, so unfair.

      You and I are the same age and I also have three beautiful children and love being with my seven grandchildren. I’m always amazed when I hear from people around the world reading my books. What an honor to be taken with you on your journey. I pray the Lord uses my words to encourage you and fill you with His hope and peace. I wish you could be at The Oaks Retreat too and thank you for your prayers for those who will be there.

      Your friend in Christ,

    Would perhaps like to attend this but having trouble accessing the page for signing up and info. HELP????

    1. Dear Susan,
      Thanks so much for your interest in this great getaway. The link Unlocking YOU appears near the bottom of my April 12 blog post (in green). If that still doesn’t work for you, email me at and I’ll email you a flier with it. I tried to repost it here but I can’t figure out if I can insert a link in comments. So hope this works out for you! I’ll love to meet you.
      P.S. The link also is posted on my “Speaking” page under “Upcoming Events”–just in case that works better for you!
