Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you going next?
Above + Beyond Cancer is leading a Journey to Tibet in September 2018.  We will be undertaking a medical mission trip to work at a public cancer hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal, providing humanitarian care to their patients and families.  Over the years we have developed close ties with the cancer hospitals in Kathmandu, and we look forward to once again providing care and service alongside the inspiring health care workers and cancer patients.  In addition to our mission work, Above + Beyond Cancer will lead the group of survivors and caregivers on our first-ever journey to Mount Kailash in Tibet.  Pilgrimages to and around Mount Kailash are sacred to four different religions and dates back thousands of years.  The path around the mountain is 32 miles long and reaches an altitude of 18,471 feet.  The mission work in Kathmandu and circumambulation of Mount Kailash will take 21 days to complete.  This will be one of our most exciting and inspirational journeys to date!

 

What are the dates of the journey?
September 2018.  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 will need to raise $8,000 to support the mission and cost of the journey.  Funds are tax deductible and must be raised by May 31, 2018.   
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 April 1st, 2018.
