“Not only are you whisked away to exotic places, but you will meet some of the bravest people on earth! You will laugh, you will cry, you will learn to thrive and you will forge new friendships. I wish I could go on each and every cruise that was offered!” — Gail Duscha, Tamarac, FL

“I had such an amazing time with a wonderful group of women who I know I will stay in touch with forever. We laughed, we sang, we danced, we listened, we learned… breast cancer is a club no one wants to join, but once you’re in it, you meet the best people. And the Breast Cancer Wellness Cruise is a great way to bond with your sisters! Thank you Beverly, Laurie and Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine for the amazing experience! Can’t wait to meet up with everyone again!” — Bethany Kandel, New York City
