Thank you for making a dream (that I didn’t even know I had) come true, and for connecting me with people and places that I would not have otherwise. Words cannot express how truly grateful I am. I was so fresh coming out of treatment and thought I was doing great. And I was…for someone who just came out of a battle. But only now am I truly appreciating what a process this whole Cancer journey is. You have made an incredible difference in my life and my perspective not with just dealing with cancer but in so many other ways. The experiences and relationships made on that trip have made me a better person. ~ Stacy (Delhi 2014 Participant)
