THE STORY:

Terri Wingham wrote -

Audacious and hopeful, A Fresh Chapter’s mission is to heal the emotional scars of cancer through volunteering and meaningful travel. In March 2016, I will join other people impacted by cancer for a two-week volunteer program in India. 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.  

I’m so excited and grateful to be given the opportunity to go to India to help others. My biggest challenge having had cancer was the feeling that I had lost myself. I feared I would never find a way back to the person I was. Over time, I‘ve learned to embrace and love myself again.

Through my experience with cancer I’ve found that despite adverse circumstances we all have the capacity to feel happiness and joy and that we are capable of cultivating it within ourselves. On this trip I will be a cancer Ambassador in communities where cancer is often veiled in shame, secrecy and stigma. I hope by telling my story I can empower others and be an example that it’s possible to live a full, happy life while managing this disease.

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. I look forward to bringing you with me on this journey of discovery and will volunteer in your honor while I'm in India! Thank you for your support!
