SEEING BEYOND THE HORIZON. TOGETHER.
THERAPEUTIC ADVENTURES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WITH CANCER
Since 1996, the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation has given young people with cancer the opportunity to leave the hospital and immerse themselves in nature. Accompanied by a medical team and therapeutic adventure facilitators, they take up the challenge of a four-to-twelve-day expedition in a remote environment. Photography is of vital importance to the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation. A volunteer blogger/photographer joins each expedition. The photos remind young people that their cancer experience has also had happy moments, which helps sustain the therapeutic benefits of the program.
Seeing Beyond the Horizon. Together is one of six accompanying exhibitions presented along the World Press Photo Montreal 2022.
