The Gawler Cancer Foundation is a not for profit, non-denominational organisation, that promotes a whole-person (holistic) and integrative approach to health, healing and wellbeing.

For over 30 years we have been helping people with cancer improve their recovery outcomes and quality of life, through the delivery of our lifestyle-focused cancer retreat programs in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

Forming the backbone of our lifestyle approach to cancer management and recovery, are our '7 Essential Elements' for good health and wellbeing:

- Anti-inflammatory plant-based nutrition

- Mindfulness meditation

- Tapping into the power of the conscious and subconscious mind

- Emotional healing

- Purpose and meaning in life

- Exercise and movement therapies

- Social support structures

During their stay, retreat participants immerse in experiential learning sessions, delving into both the scientific evidence behind these lifestyle interventions, as well as receiving practical guidance and support from our expert therapeutic team with implementing these interventions into their everyday life.

The evidence-based lifestyle interventions and mind-body practices taught in our cancer will safely support any medical treatment or complementary therapies you choose as part of your treatment plan. Attending a retreat with a partner/support person is recommended where possible.
