A Fresh Chapter
Create Opportunities for Renewed Purpose and Possibility

A Fresh Chapter offers partners and sponsors the opportunity to join us as we transform the pain and adversity of cancer into an opportunity for renewed purpose, fresh connections and meaningful possibilities. Our programs provide organizations at the forefront of evolving the cancer paradigm beyond survival an interactive way to engage with patients and caregivers who are seeking a productive way to heal the emotional scars of cancer. Together, we help people impacted by the disease move forward to live healthier, more meaningful lives – all while creating a meaningful ripple of good in the world. Sponsorship and partnership opportunities can be tailored to your organization’s specific business and corporate social responsibility goals. Terri Wingham, President and CEO of A Fresh Chapter, would be happy to connect with you to explore how your organization could benefit from being part of this innovative program. Contact Terri at terri@afreshchapter.com or visit our Partner with Us page to learn more.

A Fresh Chapter also partners with organizations in every country where we conduct our programs to ensure an authentic, safe and sustainable experience. Whether helping to arrange community-based volunteerism opportunities or connecting us with local cancer survivors and caregivers, our partners help to make our programs possible. If you are interested in partnering with A Fresh Chapter for one of our Odyssey programs in Costa Rica, India, Peru, South Africa, or the U.S., contact us at terri@afreshchapter.com.

Current Partners & Sponsors

Eli Lilly & Company: The Peru Odyssey program is a partnership between A Fresh Chapter and Eli Lilly & Company’s Connecting Hearts Abroad Program. Half of the program’s participants are employees of Lilly who have experienced cancer first-hand and the second half are selected from the broader A Fresh Chapter community. This program was first launched in October 2016 and will be returning to Peru in 2017. A Fresh Chapter is proud of our unique relationship with Eli Lilly, a global pharmaceutical company that unites caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world.

Cross-Cultural Solutions: A Fresh Chapter founder and CEO, Terri Wingham, first traveled to South Africa in 2011 to volunteer with Cross-Cultural Solutions (CCS) after her own experience with breast cancer. Since then, A Fresh Chapter’s partnership with CCS has continued to grow. From our pilot program in India in 2013 to our expansion to Peru and Costa Rica, A Fresh Chapter values the leadership CCS has demonstrated in the field of international volunteering over the past 20 years. CCS follows a community-centric approach in which the local people are the experts. They have long standing relationships with local organizations in every community in which they do work, ensuring our volunteers are providing support in a sustainable, meaningful way.

G Adventures: Every A Fresh Chapter Odyssey program includes a once-in-a-lifetime experience – from visiting the Taj Mahal in India to seeing Machu Picchu in Peru. A Fresh Chapter partners with G Adventures in India, Peru, and Costa Rica to ensure a well planned, safe, and  awe-inducing experience. G Adventures is an adventure travel pioneer offering awe-inspiring small group tours and expeditions embracing authentic accommodation, exotic cuisine and local transport for a sustainable travel experience.

LIVESTRONG Foundation: A Fresh Chapter has a new partnership with a South African LIVESTRONG leader who is helping to design and manage the volunteer components of our oncology-focused volunteer program in South Africa. The LIVESTRONG Foundation fights for the millions of people around the world who are currently affected by cancer. They provide direct services to anyone affected by cancer, connect people and communities with the services they need, and call for state, national and world leaders to help fight the disease.

CanSupport: A Fresh Chapter has built an ongoing partnership with New Delhi-based CanSupport, connecting our India participants with local cancer patients and survivors. CanSupport enables people with advanced cancer and their families to make informed choices and decisions and to receive appropriate physical, emotional, social and spiritual support.

A Fresh Chapter is one of the most compelling and inspiring organizations we've partnered with over the last 22 years. International volunteers have the power to change everything through service, kindness and cross-cultural exchange. A Fresh Chapter takes this impact to a whole new level with their incredible facilitation and programming for their participants. We are so proud and honored to partner with A Fresh Chapter. — Farhana Rehman-Furs, President, Cross Cultural Solutions
The Need for Our Work

Approximately 40% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. There are now more than 14.5 million cancer survivors in just the U.S. and countless additional caregivers who support them. Innovative support interventions are needed to address the emotional scars of the disease.
