Hi all you wonderful CCS community folk!

Just over a month ago I was hired as the new Program Coordinator for Survive & Thrive, a cancer-support organization based in Calgary, AB. I am loving this new role and wanted to share it with you!  

Survive & Thrive uses adventure expeditions, local retreats, workshops, and creative film projects to encourage and inspire young adults touched by cancer to live well. We have some truly incredible trips, including rafting in the Grand Canyon, canoeing on Lake Superior and kayaking on the Owyhee River in Oregon.  We also have weekend camp retreats where we can connect with each other, get creative, relax and laugh a ton. Starting later this spring, we'll be launching a rock-climbing program (which I'm very excited about!), and some other outdoor adventures like group hikes in the mountains. 

My role as Program Coordinator is to extend a warm welcome to anyone who applies for our programs, and help guide them through the sign-up process. I love my job because I get to interact with some of the most wonderful people I've ever met! The survivor community has been such a big support to me in my cancer journey, and I feel blessed to be able to give back in such a meaningful (and fun!) way.

I encourage anyone who might be interested in our programs to check us out at
