Adventure 2016

Lisa Trent, West Virginia

Breast Cancer

Lisa traveled with us on the first Fly Fishing Festival. She had just finished the last of her chemotherapy and was on her way to fish with new friends. She fought breast cancer twice. Through all of her sickness she managed to raise her children and work two jobs.

Lisa and I worked together. She gave me the idea of taking a lady on the trip free of charge. Because I seen in her what fighting for your life meant. Yes Lisa was my inspiration. She never complained. I’d have to corner her to find out where she was medically. At this time Lisa is happily married and still working (thankfully one job).

We wish Lisa a long happy healthy life, and hope she joins us on another adventure.

Much love,

Pam

Angela Swartz, Ohio

Kidney Cancer

Angie was in the midst of fighting cancer when she went on our second annual Fly Fishing Festival. Four of her life long friends wanted to take her on the trip for support. They had been friends since kindergarten. The love between these ladies shown through on the entire trip. They laughed and cried and shared stories about their past with us. A truly loving group of ladies that I’m proud to say are now a part of us as friends and fly sisters.

We wish Angie a long happy healthy life full of friendships and memories. Hope you go on another adventure Angie!
