How it Works
Our programs are open to any adult who has been diagnosed with cancer and who is healthy enough to travel (regardless of age, type of tumor, or stage of disease) and anyone who has been deeply impacted by cancer as a caregiver.
Once you’ve applied and been accepted into one of our programs, you’ll be supported through every step of the process – from fundraising support to help you offset the program fee, to one-on-one and group calls with our team to answer your questions and help you prepare mentally and emotionally for the experience ahead. Our intention is to ensure you feel a strong sense of support and community, from day one until long after you return home.
Our Odyssey programs are embedded into a larger framework of support – a curated collection of tools, support and additional resources that allow participants to fully integrate the benefits of the program into their lives. The Fresh Chapter Odyssey program framework includes four phases – each designed to support participants before, during and after their transformational volunteer travel experience. The Odyssey program framework is customizable and can be scaled up or down based on an individual participant’s unique needs and personal bandwidth.
