First Descents is an organization that offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience which empowers them to climb, paddle and surf to defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others having similar experiences.
The First Descents experience helps young adult survivors and fighters become empowered by overcoming legitimate outdoor challenges to push their limits and face their fears, which helps them regain the confidence and self-efficacy lost to cancer. First Descents is cognizant of each individual’s experience and provides the right support for every participant to achieve their goals for the week. They do not offer any structured group sessions or therapy as the experience is designed to allow healing to happen naturally and organically.
Each program is limited to 15 participants, ensuring individualized care, medical attention and an intimate experience with fellow survivors. First Descents programs are available to young adults with cancer regardless of their financial means. Meals, accommodations and program activities are provided free of charge, including travel scholarships, when needed.
