About:  Leanne Widen is yoga teacher, volunteer, breast cancer survivor, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and new grandmother to 2 grandsons.

Her Interests: Travel, fitness, yoga, church, reading and volunteering

How I became Involved with BCR: I attended Infinite Boundaries after being diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 43 in 2005. The retreat allowed me to work on the emotional tole that breast cancer had left behind, after diagnosis & treatment. Infinite Boundaries impacted my healing so profoundly, that I have been a volunteer for the organization ever since.

About Why You Support BCR:  I teach Divine Yoga at Messiah Lutheran Church and each session collect donations that are generously matched for area non-profits, including BCR. I want to support the mission and especially contribute to keeping the retreats affordable to any woman breast cancer survivor hoping to heal emotionally.
