Why did you choose to take part in an expedition with the foundation?

To meet other cancer survivors, make friends, and try something!

What were you fears or doubts before you jumped into the adventure?

Leaving my dog for 2 weeks and not being able to do it it physically.

What memories and benefits did you bring back home?

Being able to be disconnected to my cell phone, for the first time and probably only time.
Climbing a mountain after Cancer, the expedition gave me confidence, strength back.
