A Fresh Chapter
Redefine What Is Possible After Cancer with Your Donation

Whether you’ve personally experienced cancer, lost someone to cancer, or want to be part of an innovative solution for healing, your donation will change lives. Join us in shedding light on the emotional and psychological aspects of the disease while we build bridges that help patients live fuller, healthier, and more meaningful lives.

Audacious and hopeful, A Fresh Chapter aims to transform adversity into purpose and possibility. Through proven US and International programs, participants gain perspective, find community, and redefine their lives.

Since February 2013, 158 A Fresh Chapter participants have contributed more than 5,000 volunteer hours to dozens of organizations – positively impacting the lives of many hundreds of people around the world. Our comprehensive framework of support before, during, and after each volunteer experience helps participants process and reframe the adversity of cancer while reimagining the possibilities for their future(s). With your support, we can create an even bigger ripple of good in 2018.

The Need for Our Work

According to the American Cancer Society, there are now more than 15.5 million cancer survivors in the United States. This number is expected to grow to nearly 20 million by 2026.

There is a vacuum of support when it comes to helping people redefine their lives after a cancer diagnosis.

Many struggle with feelings of depression, isolation, fear of recurrence, survivor guilt, anger, broken relationships, and difficulty with re-entering their “normal lives”. Often these byproducts of the cancer experience go untreated and impact the mental and physical health of patients and their ability to integrate back into their families and communities. By using volunteerism and meaningful travel as a healing mechanism, as well as providing tangible tools for expanding the story beyond cancer, we give people who have experienced cancer a meaningful way to start fresh.

For four years I wondered, looking for an answer as to why I have cancer. I thought I needed a reason. Really what I needed was a tribe. A group of people who understood. I found them in Peru. Before Peru I was angry, sad and completely lost. Being with a tribe of people who understood brought me back from a very dark place. Peru and A Fresh Chapter helped a damaged mother, wife and woman find her joy again, and in turn, saved a family. — Hannah, 2016 Peru Odyssey Tribe
