Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you going next?
Above + Beyond Cancer is going to Africa in January 2017.  We will be undertaking a medical mission trip to work at a public cancer hospital in Kenya providing humanitarian care to their patients and families.  We will also be collaborating with the American Cancer Society as they build the first-ever Hope Lodge outside the United States.  This Hope Lodge will provide lodging for cancer patients who travel great distances to receive outpatient  treatment at this cancer center.  In addition to our mission work, Above + Beyond Cancer will lead the group of survivors and caregivers to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.  Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa.  It’s an amazing place.  Our climb will be a classic mind-body-spirit Above + Beyond Cancer journey that will provide survivors and caregivers the opportunity to reach above and beyond what they thought might be possible.   Participants will learn to live lives filled with purpose and passion.  It will be a journey and a pilgrimage that will change your life.

What are the dates of the journey?
January 2017.  More details to come.

I’m not a cancer survivor. Can I still go?
Above + Beyond Cancer transformational journeys are open to cancer survivors and caregivers.  A caregiver is someone who has not had cancer but agrees to go on the journey to support the cancer survivors.  If you fit into those categories, we encourage you to apply!
How much does it cost?
Each participant is asked to raise $5,000 to support the mission and cost of the journey.  Funds are tax deductible and must be raised by October 31, 2016.   
Can I apply with a friend/family member?
Yes! Just indicate this in the application.  

What if I’m not selected?
No hard feelings. We get applications from many inspiring individuals with incredible stories, just like you!  The truth is, we just can’t take everyone.  We encourage you to apply for a future journey with Above + Beyond Cancer, as well as getting involved with our other programs.

How do I know if I’m selected? 
If you are selected you will be notified via phone call.

What is the deadline to apply?
Applications will be accepted until August 1st, 2016.
