"When you're a teenager, the worst possible thing that can happen to you is isolation," he said. "Even if you're in a room full of people, if you're not with another teenager losing their hair, going through what you're going through, you feel alone. We bring those kids together. We give them a common experience, and within two days, the wigs come off and they don't have to worry about their scars, their missing limbs. It just doesn't matter anymore."
Bailey said the trips give patients a break from treatments and the opportunity to spend time with teenagers going through similar experiences.
