Bundalong the home of newest breast cancer retreat

Thursday, June 25, 2015

A waterfront property in Bundalong has become the most recent Victorian retreat for women living with the challenges of breast cancer.

The OTIS Foundation has secured the property to be known as Riverside retreat as an important addition to its network of retreats which are offered to people living with breast cancer at no cost.

The OTIS Foundation’s General Manager, Rachel Mason said the Bundalong retreat, like all of its properties, will offer guests the gift of time and space in an environment that allows them to relax, reconnect and heal with family, friends and supporters, “Our guests tell us that a stay at an OTIS retreat is often the pivotal turning point when the series of negatives they have faced start to change.” Mrs Mason said.

“In the last year alone we have provided more than 2000 nights stay to people living with breast cancer and their families and we continue to see demand for our properties increase. It is only through the generosity of families such as Shepparton’s Sorraghan family, that we are able to provide this gift. They have donated their holiday home for use by OTIS guests during the times of the year that it generally lies empty.” Added Mrs Mason.

Currently, the OTIS Foundation has 20 properties across Victoria, NSW and SA, with plans to expand into Queensland and WA in the coming months.

“Our aim now is to find generous individuals, organisations or service clubs that would be interested in helping to support the running costs associated with cleaning and linen provision at this retreat, which we estimate at $5,000 annually.” Mrs Mason commented.
