San Francisco, California
Whether you work for a cancer non-profit or advocate via social media and online platforms, you serve on the front lines of cancer every day. You provide support and information to cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, fellow advocates and friends who face extreme financial, physical, or emotional hardship – often while grappling with your own experience of cancer (either as a patient or caregiver). With competing and complex demands on your time, it’s rare for you to have an opportunity to step beyond the borders of your cause to gain fresh perspectives, address cancer’s emotional scars, set goals for the future and reconnect to what inspired you to join the advocacy movement in the first place.
In August 2018, A Fresh Chapter will offer our second U.S. based ReFresh Experience For Cancer Advocates where we customize our proven model of volunteering, travel, leadership development, and psychosocial support – specifically for the advocacy community. ReFresh provides a unique networking experience as well as a forum for building stronger partnerships and growing the cancer advocacy movement. ReFresh will serve as a building block for future programs, ongoing collaboration, and a more comprehensive approach to fostering emerging leaders across our industry.
