April 11, 2017 – Send Me On Vacation, the US-based Charity dedicated to creating memorable vacation experiences for breast cancer sufferers and survivors, has expanded its program globally, and will be kicking off with a 7-month Worldwide Survivor Tour starting April.
The Send Me on Vacation Worldwide Survivor Tour will visit Tokyo, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand – attending Bangkok’s World Travel and Tourism Council Global Summit, followed in June with visits to the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and the USA – with a stop off at the World Survivors’ Alliance Conference in Nashville, Tennessee and ending in October with visits to France, England, Spain and finally Italy. The tour aims to educate, build awareness, drive donations and provide information to survivors on unique demographic and cultural distinctions as the Charity researches treatment and connects survivors around the world, awarding them with healing and restorative vacations to offset the adverse effects of the disease.
Over the next decade, we can expect over 17.5 million patients to contract breast cancer, 5 million of these will not survive, and 3.6 million will be in low and middle income countries.
The tour is supported by some of the world’s leading Travel Industry brands with big philanthropic hearts, including Delta Airlines, Snazzy Traveler, 180º Wellness and the Absolute World Group, collaborating to facilitate the Send Me On Vacation World Survivor Tour, by providing accommodations and supporting the tour’s travel needs.
Widely regarded as a unique charitable organization, Send Me On Vacation creates positive change and provides ongoing therapy and resources during and after each vacation. These vacations and empowerment workshops help survivors cope with the many issues and concerns they confront when treatment has ended. Send Me On Vacation is a valuable resource for breast cancer survivors, providing the tools to increase emotional fitness and wellbeing, and adjust to a new way of life.
“Receiving the award of a Vacation from Send Me On Vacation and attending their program changed my life and the effect that fighting breast cancer had on my family,” says Heidi Lamprecht, breast cancer Survivor and Mother of two. “I knew my level of emotional fitness had been depleted during my battle and I never imagined that I could find an organization like Send Me On Vacation to restore my inner beauty, strength and grace. I want to share this amazing charity with the world!” Heidi will be blogging as the Tour journeys around the world.
