I first dreamed of traveling abroad as a young girl as I excitedly awaited airmail letters from my uncle who traveled all over the world. His stories of the people, the culture and the rawness of life captivated my yearning to follow in his footsteps. During the year, I decided when I was well enough, I would go after that dream. The journey to India will give me the chance for a fresh start, making my dream REAL. I know it will be an experience that will forever leave its mark on my heart.
To make this trip even more meaningful, I have set a goal of raising $5000 for the Fresh Chapter Alliance Foundation (FCAF). This money will help support medical and travel insurance, in-country food, accommodation, transportation, cultural activities and a once in a lifetime experience at the Taj Mahal. FCAF has a mission of igniting a spark of possibility, purpose, and connection in cancer survivors through the use of volunteer and bucket list adventures. FCAF’s programming addresses the post-treatment isolation and depression many survivors face while giving them (us) the opportunity to volunteer with important community projects and experience dream come true moments.
I believe this journey will help to restore my body, mind and spirit, as I'm eager to turn the page to celebrate wellness with a fresh start while making a difference in the lives of others. I am excited for this dream to come true!
