OFF THE MAP

This would be the place where colorectal cancer, FAP and desmoid tumor survivors from outside the United States can share their face photos and survivorship stories. Because after all, americans aren’t the only ones who have these diseases. Also, this would be the place for survivors within the US who I’ve not yet photographed, to share their faces and survivorship stories.

Imagine it, hundreds of survivor faces and stories from every corner of this planet of ours. Talk about an incredible way to show how these diseases affect people in mass quantities from nnnumerous worldly locations.

All you colorectal cancer, FAP and desmoid tumor survivors who are located outside the United States or survivors who reside within the United States who I have not yet been able to meet with in person, send your face photos and survivorship stories to yo@destinationxride.org. Be sure to include your name, which of the three above diseases you have, age you were diagnosed and country you reside in. And commence with the story telling. 

I vvvery much look forward to receiving all your faces and stories for  OFF THE MAP.
