In the year and a half since it was first incorporated as a non-profit organization, Angels of Courage Retreats has accomplished great things.


"We've made huge headway in just a little over a year," said executive director Carly Nelson, a Lake Park native who now makes her home in Fargo.

Nelson, a two-time cancer survivor who was diagnosed with lupus in 2001, co-founded Angels of Courage in April 2007 with fellow cancer survivor Don Goering.
