Seattle, WA, April 25, 2010 --( When Mom’s a cancer survivor, Mother’s Day is all the more precious – and deserving of a truly special gift and celebration. How about a Travel Toward Wellness (TTW) spa vacation or a shopping trip to Tuscany, Italy?

Travel Toward Wellness is a unique travel company which specializes in girlfriend getaways and health and wellness travel for women touched by cancer, whether they’ve completed treatment recently or years ago.

Highlights of the 2010 TTW calendar include:

- A 5-day Oasis By The Bay Spa Retreat at Cavallo Point – The Lodge in the San Francisco Bay area, September 12 – 16. Register before June 30 for a special $769 rate and enjoy a 10 percent savings for a companion

- Shop Around Tuscany, October 9-16, which will take travelers with a taste for Italy’s finest, such as Prada and Fendi , to visit designer and leather goods outlets throughout the region

“Travel is life-affirming and therapeutic – and a wonderful way to mark a new chapter in your life,” said TTW founder Nancy Parker, a breast cancer survivor who draws on 25-plus years of planning travel and meetings with Fortune 100 companies.

TTW trips empower women survivors and co-survivors to visit places and have experiences they’ve dreamed about, in the company of their friends and family, or on their own while forming new friendships. Exciting and relaxing, the trips are designed to also address head-on the physical and emotional challenges women cancer survivors face after active treatment.

From healing spa retreats to girlfriend getaways, fitness, art, cuisine and “shopping therapy” trips, the company arranges group travel to distinctive destinations throughout the U.S. and abroad. Trips range from four days to two weeks. For more information, visit
