A Fresh Chapter
Innovate With Us

With inspiring breakthroughs and advancements in the way cancer is diagnosed and treated, we are on the precipice of a new oncology frontier. Now it’s time to revolutionize how we think about the emotional scars of cancer – often hidden, but etched deeply in the lives of patients and communities impacted by cancer. A Fresh Chapter programs create an exponential ripple of good in the world while taking positive action against the emotional scars of cancer. Whether returning to work with renewed purpose, healing relationships with loved ones, committing to ongoing volunteering, or even making peace with dying, A Fresh Chapter’s revolutionary approach to cancer support is building stronger collaborative communities and a better world.

A Fresh Chapter offers innovative partnership opportunities that range from traditional sponsorship to customized programs that blend employee wellness, employee engagement, and corporate social responsibility. Through our model, your organization can make a meaningful contribution to healing the lives of people impacted by cancer while also providing volunteers for projects at home and around the world. In addition, our team can work with you to develop customized programs that contribute to the health, wellness and leadership skills of your employees while simultaneously serving projects and causes you care about. Learn more about how we can work together to meet your social responsibility goals and transform adversity into possibility.

Our Impact

A Fresh Chapter’s International and U.S.-based Odyssey programs offer diverse groups of women and men a way to step beyond the label of cancer patient, survivor, or caregiver, and into a new world of volunteering, cultural understanding, and personal growth and development. Our programs offer a unique volunteer travel experience that acts as a catalyst to help participants realize it is possible to heal, connect, and serve others while reclaiming your life.

Since 2013, A Fresh Chapter has:

  • Transformed the lives of hundreds of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers through global community service experiences that build resiliency and the courage to turn adversity into positive action.
  • Raised awareness about the detrimental emotional scars of cancer including depression, isolation, anger, fear of recurrence or death and the need to provide innovative models to accelerate growth and healing.
  • Expanded from a pilot volunteer program in India to sites in Peru, Costa Rica, South Africa and the United States – completing eight service programs that rippled out to benefit thousands. 
  • Donated over 5,000 volunteer hours to serve non-profits like Mother Teresa’s in India, Amate – a cancer support offering in Peru, Etafeni – a South African NGO supporting those affected and infected by HIV, as well as U.S. based non-profits like L.A. Kitchen and St. Vincent de Paul. 
  • Partnered with Eli Lilly & Company to meet the organization’s Corporate Social Responsibility and Patient Advocacy goals through an innovative corporate partnership model. Through this program, 10 Lilly employees from around the world and across multiple levels of the organization – each personally impacted by cancer – joined 10 other cancer patients and survivors for a 2-week program in Lima, Peru that wove together volunteerism with psychosocial support, cultural immersion, team building and leadership development. 
  • Created a global network that includes thousands of cancer survivors, patients, their families and caregivers, oncology health professionals, social workers, non-profits, and corporations – with a combined reach of millions of people – that are all committed to the cause of cancer support.
  • Developed and delivered online tools, resources, and support as part of a comprehensive six-month program experience – designed to help our participants improve quality of life and discover a new sense of agency to turn adversity into positive action.


Lilly's partnership with A Fresh Chapter has helped strengthen our global employee volunteer program and enrich the lives of Lilly volunteers who embark on this unique experience with fellow cancer survivors. As a global healthcare company, Lilly strives to make life better. Our collaboration with A Fresh Chapter gives Lilly volunteers the opportunity to care for people living in impoverished communities. And it gives Lilly the opportunity to support the emotional healing of our employees who are recovering from cancer. — Kathryn Hudson, Program Manager for Connecting Hearts Abroad, Eli Lilly and Company
