On this week’s program we learned about an inspiring organization called First Descents, which aims to empower young adult cancer fighters and survivors through extreme outdoor challenges. Since its inception, First Descents has offered free kayaking, rock climbing, and surfing trips to thousands of young adults, allowing them to defy cancer and reclaim their lives.
We had the privilege of hearing from First Descents’ founder and CEO, Brad Ludden, as well as past participant and Alumni Advisory Board member Craig Stein. Both speakers illuminated the transformational power of First Descents’ unique and organic approach to healing. Through the platform of adventure, the organization strives to offset some of the psychosocial consequences of cancer diagnosis. We look forward to seeing First Descents continue to grow in order to play an instrumental role in the lives of even more young adults affected by cancer.
