First Descents is sustained by the exceptional generosity of our family of donors. Thank you for helping making the adventure of a lifetime possible for so many young adult cancer fighters and survivors. We couldn’t do it without you!
And now, a word from our participants:
“I went into see my doctors today for scans, blood work, the whole 9 yards. Scans were clean, but the best part was my doctor saying, “You’re just a different girl, so relaxed, just a total different energy. No anxiety meds, no anti depressants? What’s going on?” Big fat smile followed by a laugh. “I went surfing with First Descents.” – FD1 Surfing, 2013
“My heart is full. I’ve gained a new family. I’m already thinking about what new adventures lie ahead. How I can continue to connect with other survivors. How to keep my heart open. How to live more freely. I am truly truly grateful for the adventure. Thank you First Descents.” – FD Participant, 2014
“While this sounds completely insane, knowing what I know now about FD, if three years ago someone gave me the choice between 1. cancer, treatment, and FD or 2. continue with my life as is and never be introduced to FD, I’d hands down choose option 1.” – FD2 Kayaking, 2013
