I did a search here for any previous posts with "Reel Recovery" in the title, and it didn't give me any direct results, so ...
I had a call from a young fly guy yesterday who was telling me about a friend of his (about 23-years-old) who is about to do another intense battle with cancer. The caller was asking about my experience with Reel Recovery, and I pointed him toward the Texas Reel Recovery website - http://www.texasreelrecovery.org, and I dug in there this morning and found where they published a story (I had written) about my experience at one of their events - http://www.texasreelrecovery.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Texas-Reel-Recovery-Retreat-SDreport.pdf . Perhaps this will help someone out there, or let them know about this fine organization.

Shannon,
well done!

I've been involved with reel recovery since 2009 when Warren Wolf brought it to Texas. This program has had a great and positive impact on many people's lives.

Shannon,
Thanks for your words of encouragement and for lifting up Reel Recovery.
I too have been with Reel Recovery as a volunteer since Warren started the Texas Chapter.
I have been blessed with meeting and making friends with some very brave men through my volunteer time at Reel Recovery.
Although I was not on your retreat I am proud to call you one of those brave friends that God has placed in my life.
I pray for your continued healing.

Thanks for all the kind words. I am somewhat disgusted with myself for not knowing more, and participating more with this organization - UNTIL I had cancer. I hope I can make up for it, and continue to give back in the ways I am most capable.
