Epic Experience offers in-person and online programs for cancer survivors and thrivers: weeklong camps in the Rockies, Regional Survivorship Days, the Campfires of Hope: Living Beyond Cancer podcast, virtual exercise classes, and ThriveVR virtual reality programs. These programs help survivors rekindle hope, regain inner strength and find community among those who understand what it means to have cancer.
Such an amazing day zip-lining, climbing through the trees and hanging out with friends old and new! As a cancer survivor, former camper and now volunteer with Epic Experience Beyond Cancer, I know firsthand how incredibly life-changing this community is and how lucky I am to be part of the Epic Experience family. The best part of the day was watching how a day of hanging out and connecting with other survivors and thrivers can truly transform lives. Some of our participants had just completed cancer treatment, and watching those survivors challenge themselves on the adventure course and then realize what they are capable of beyond cancer is so inspiring. Other participants are in active treatment, and so today was an incredible reminder for them of how strong and resilient they are. Epic Experience helped me live beyond my cancer and so now I volunteer with Epic Experience to help other survivors and thrivers live beyond cancer too.

What I gained from Epic Experience is inexplicable and goes beyond anything I ever imagined to happen. You see, cancer has been a lonely and isolating journey for me. There are no support groups for 44 year old colon cancer survivors. In fact there is not much available in the way of survivorship resources and support where I live. At Epic Experience I was given the opportunity to unpack all my feelings of fear and sadness and at the same time share my strength and hopes.
