Cancer Survivors Relax at Retreat

Some East Texas cancer survivors headed to camp for the chance to get away from the stresses of life.
 Sixty cancer survivors are participating in the "Great Getaway," a three day retreat at Pine Cove Conference Center.
The retreat gives survivors the chance to relax and meet with others who have battled cancer. Some say it's just what they needed to unwind.
"I am having a great time," says cancer survivor Jackie Browning. "Last night we stayed up late in our room. You get to meet other people. This is so great."
The retreat offers massages, stress management techniques and the chance for cancer survivors to talk with healthcare professionals.
