Our mission is to heal the emotional scars of cancer through volunteerism, meaningful travel and programs designed to reframe adversity and redefine what’s possible. Becoming a part of the A Fresh Chapter tribe is not limited to participants in our program – nor is it limited to people affected by cancer! If you are passionate about helping people impacted by cancer to live fuller lives, keep reading to find out how you can get involved.
APPLY TO PARTICIPATE
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. We believe the trauma of cancer has a broad impact on individuals, on families, and on communities. We want to inspire more possibility, more purpose, and more meaningful connections in the lives of those touched by cancer, all while creating a ripple of good in the world.
DONATE TO A FRESH CHAPTER
A Fresh Chapter is a non-profit dedicated to healing the emotional scars of cancer. Through our proven U.S. and international programs, participants gain perspective, find community, and redefine their lives. Together, we can transform the adversity of cancer into renewed purpose and healing. Your donations help to make our programs possible.
PARTNER WITH US
A Fresh Chapter believes in a collaborative approach and values the expertise and support of our various partners at home and overseas. We offer our sponsors a unique opportunity to engage with patients while revolutionizing cancer support – and we are proud to work with ethical, sustainable volunteer partners around the world.
MELISSA CARROLL LEGACY FUND
In addition to the emotional scars, cancer can also leave people financially devastated. Most A Fresh Chapter participants fundraise via friends and family to help subsidize the program costs, but not everyone has the capacity or network to raise the program fee. The Melissa Carroll Legacy Fund offers life-changing scholarships to participants in need of financial assistance.
VOLUNTEER WITH US
Volunteerism is central to our mission – for our participants and for our organization. A Fresh Chapter empowers our volunteers to use their unique skills and talents to help create a better world. From providing support to a new participant, to creating compelling content, to hosting a fundraising event, every volunteer matters.
SPONSORS AND PARTNERS
No organization can exist in a vacuum – we all benefit from the support, experience and expertise of other organizations. A Fresh Chapter would not be where it is today without the support of our sponsors and partners.
