WE ARE BACK and want to welcome Cottage owners and Cancer Survivors to the 2022 Summer Season of COTTAGE DREAMS Cancer Recovery Initiative.

All indications show that this will be a “Much Improved” Cottage season as compared to the previous years, hopefully the weather will co-operate as well.

Even though Cottage Dreams has been on hiatus for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, we  have continued to receive numerous applications from Cancer Patients wanting to take part in our program. To “PAUSE, RECONNECT, and REFRESH”. Sadly we had to keep telling them, sorry, maybe next year.

Well this is Next Year.

Cottage Dreams, Cancer Recovery Initiative, is ready to launch our 2022 program of offering generously donated, private cottages, to Cancer survivors as well as those living with Cancer. Now all we need is YOU!

Cottage Owners:

Is your cottage sitting empty during the week? If YES, then why not consider lending it to Cottage Dreams for a Sunday to Friday time period?

With the donation of your cottage to Cottage Dreams we will be able to provide a current Cancer survivor or someone living with Cancer, a 5 day opportunity to relax at your cottage, and to reconnect with their family or friends.

As a cottage owner you can attest to the widely held opinion that time spent in natural surroundings, such as a cottage, goes a long way to improve the mental and physical health of an individual as well as their family.

We ask that you take a moment to consider offering your piece of Paradise to someone trying to get their life back in order. It is an unselfish act of kindness that goes a very long way.

Please contact: [email protected] with any questions you may have.

Cancer Survivors and those Living with Cancer:

Cottage Dreams, through the generosity of private Cottage Owners, can provide you with a start on your journey of HEALING. Cottages in Ontario are made available for you and your family or friends for a 5 day period, running Sunday afternoon to Friday noon. This allows you time to pause, reconnect and relax after the grueling months of treatments, Doctor visits, and missed family times.

If interested, please link onto our “Apply to visit” and fill out the application.

Should you require additional information, please contact: [email protected]
