WINTER 2016 - 2017
Living Journeys’ clients and their families have the opportunity to enjoy winter skiing with the Adaptive Sports Center.
Living Journeys understands that frequently after diagnosis, the focus of life, and the focus of those closest to them, becomes the cancer itself and all things related to its affects and treatment.
Treatments take a toll both physically and emotionally. Whether your treatments require consideration in your abilities or emotionally you need a reason to get back out for an adventure, Living Journeys Days are tailored to meet your specific goals and interested.
Families are often prevented from enjoying activities together as a result of the financial and time constraints related to their cancer journey. During this time, many activities are be eliminated from a family’s typical routine. Living Journeys Days at the Adaptive Sports Center hopes to fill such voids.
