NNCCF once again will partner with the High Sierra Fly Casters to host Reel Kids, Real Living, an annual fly-fishing retreat for northern Nevada childhood cancer patients and their families. More than 20 pro fly-fishing guides volunteer their time at the retreat to teach patients and their families how to perfect their casting technique and improve their skills. The full day of fishing takes place at the Pleasant Valley Fly-fishing Reserve in Markleeville, Calif. Designed to develop group support and provide a reservoir of personal hope for children in need, the Reel Kids, Real Living program provides a safe, reflective environment for participants to discuss the disease and coping mechanisms with other local families that have faced similar experiences.
Children and teens ages 8 to 18 who are in treatment for or recovering from cancer are invited to bring their siblings, also ages 8 to 18, and their parents to experience a unique day of support and fun in the beautiful outdoors.
