Reflections from a First Timer
“I was new to Washington state last year. It was also the first time I ever heard about BABES. By the time I settled in with my new apartment, doctors, and town, I missed the BABES retreat in 2016. Feeling like I may not have the energy to participate much, I hesitated to sign up for the retreat this year.

As much as my fatigue is a constant battle, I didn’t surrender this time. I am so glad I didn’t.”
