Heather Caro's Fundraiser:

Starting A Fresh Chapter in India

THE STORY:

In 2012, I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and soon found myself in a whirlwind of treatments including surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies.  Three years out from my diagnosis I am now cancer free, but my psychological and emotional recovery is ongoing.  As with many cancer survivors, I’ve struggled to find my footing post treatment.

In March 2016, I will join other people impacted by cancer for a two-week volunteer program in India with A Fresh Chapter. Whether spending time with disabled women at Mother Teresa's, working with kids at an underfunded daycare in one of Delhi's slums, or helping underserved youth through a career empowerment program, I will build new connections, gain perspective, and step beyond my story of cancer to help create a ripple of good in the world.  

Through this program I will have the opportunity to volunteer my time and energy to people on the other side of the world as well as serve as a Cancer Ambassador in communities where cancer is often veiled in shame, secrecy, and stigma.  In the process, I hope to turn the page of my own Fresh Chapter and heal myself as I work to heal the world.  Please consider donating to this extraordinary journey.  Any amount helps. I look forward to bringing you with me on this journey of discovery and will volunteer in your honor while I'm in India. 

A Fresh Chapter (Alliance Foundation) is a Project in affiliation with Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE) a non profit public charity exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations will be used to cover program related costs and all US Donations of $100+ are eligible for a tax receipt. Thank you for your support!
