When we step beyond the borders of cancer, we see that struggle is universal and new dreams are possible.

More About Our Company

IMG_3270What started as a blog about Terri’s adventures after breast cancer has evolved into a foundation dedicated to using volunteering, meaningful travel and activities that shift perspective and redefine possibility as a way to help transform the lives of people impacted by cancer: Fresh Chapter Alliance Foundation.

Whether or not cancer is part of your story, each of us goes through periods in our lives when we need to start fresh. Times when the carpet is pulled out from under us and we can’t go back to who we were. Whether we face illness, heartbreak, or devastating loss, sometimes we need a reminder that our story isn’t over. We need to believe that even when nothing has turned out the way we wished it had, it’s not too late for us to turn the page.

Here at A Fresh Chapter, we share the highs and lows of building a dream, impactful stories from contributing writers, and inspiring adventures from around the globe. Our intention is to build a community for people who know something needs to change, but are not quite sure where to start. We inspire each other to take stock of where we are today and to imagine what might be possible tomorrow. No matter what we are faced with, we challenge each other to dream audaciously and ask the question, “Why Not?”
