These 5 core values form the backdrop to every expedition.
We strive to cultivate an authentic, caring community on every expedition in order to reverse the isolation that many YA cancer survivors feel. We believe that only in a true, non-judgmental community are people free to learn and to heal.
Openness and Honesty:
Stories lead to wisdom and therefore we believe that each individuals story is valuable and should not be censored. By being open and honest about our own cancer journey we encourage others to do the same.
Adventure and Risk:
We believe adventure activities increase awareness of physical, emotional and spiritual issues as well as providing a practical avenue to live out newly discovered life lessons. Giving survivors the chance to take calculated risks allows them to step outside the narrow boundaries placed on them as a cancer patient and encourages them to risk more in their everyday lives.
We desire to empower young adults by giving them the opportunity to discover their capabilities and provide life skills to manage the tumultuous transitions and emotions of a cancer journey.
Life to the Full:
We want our trip discussions to not just be about cancer, but life in general, encouraging each to other to live life to the full.
