Testimonies

''Back home! What an adventure. I wish I could explain how therapeutic the canoeing expedition really was, but words fall short. It was wonderful to meet so many new people who were gracious enough to share their time with me, and showed me that young adults with cancer are not their diagnosis, something I struggle with often. I didn't see cancer, but instead vibrant personalities, humour, kindness and honesty in every participant and supporter during the trip. I feel like I've made significant connections to people I never would have met otherwise, and can't emphasize the healing that was done over a short 4 days. Thank you so much to On The Tip of The Toes Foundation for including me on this trip." Morgan M., participant, fall 2016
