We strive to cultivate an authentic, caring and supportive community in everything we do to reverse the isolation that many cancer survivors feel.
We desire to empower those touched by cancer 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 everything we do to not just be about cancer, but life in general, encouraging each to other to live life to the full.
Giving people the chance to take calculated risks, either on an adventure trip or in a conference room, allows them to step outside the narrow boundaries placed on them by their cancer experience and encourages them to risk more in their everyday lives.
Openness & Honesty
By being open and honest about our own cancer journey, we encourage others to do the same. Each individuals story is full of wisdom and should not be censored. We believe that only by listening to each other in a non-judgmental, loving way, are people free to learn and to heal.
We believe that experiential learning, where environments and experiences are used to create opportunities for people to learn what they need to live well, is essential to everything we do. We strive to increase awareness of physical, emotional and spiritual issues as well as providing a practical opportunities to live out newly discovered life lessons.
