Since 2006, River Discovery

From Our Board President.
Five years ago, my wife, a breast cancer survivor, was a participant on River Discovery’s week long Salmon River adventure. It was a life changing experience for her and many of that summer’s group remain close friends and see each other regularly to this day. That trip also led directly to our ongoing involvement with all of River Discovery’s programs, as well as my position on the Board of Directors. Having participated as the River Discovery trip nurse a number of times, I was amazed each year as I watched the participants, survivors of all manner of cancers, surrender to the flow of the water and accept the majestic and healing experience of life on “river time.”
There is little in my life experience that I have found quite as rewarding as those days floating down river, surrounded by those mountains, warmed by the sun, energized by the company of friends and survivors.
