Mission, Vision, and Values


Live By Living connects cancer survivors and caregivers with nature and one another through the healing power of walks, hikes and retreats.


We envision a world where every cancer survivor and caregiver is embraced by a community of peers who understand and uplift them in facing the emotional, spiritual and physical challenges of cancer. We believe in providing opportunities for people to enhance their well-being through outdoor activities in natural settings.


  • We meet people where they are.
  • We act from a place of compassion.
  • We believe in the healing power of nature, community and movement.

“This was a fabulous experience. This was my first retreat and sharing this weekend with others that have had cancer or are still being treated made the experience even more special.”
