All climbs are fun. This one is personal.

Back in November 2020 I received the news that no one ever wants to hear... "You have cancer". Thanks to the advancements in breast cancer screening, surgical techniques and treatment, I am officially on the other side and doing great only one year post diagnosis. So much so that I am ready for a new adventure... and I can think of no bigger or better challenge than to climb to Everest Base Camp AND raise $50k as part of Fred Hutch's Climb to Fight Cancer. It's a chance to check off a bucket list item and a way to show people that a cancer diagnosis doesn't need to define you. 

We all know that cancer is a devastating disease. I knew the statistics that it was estimated to strike one in three women and one in two men in their lifetimes. I knew that it claimed millions of lives per year. I had lost friends and family to the disease. I had even run a cancer company and knew first hand that research was critical to advancing treatments. But when cancer became part of my own personal journey one inescapable fact became central... those early days with cancer are terrifying. But now, one year later, I have learned that you can overcome that initial fear and come out on the other side stronger than ever. The EBC2022 climb is the ultimate analogy of the experience.  You face a mountain that is daughting and feels insurmountable at times. But we are all capable of doing hard things. And when we face challenges, the world opens up in ways we never knew it could. Please consider donating to help contribute to life saving research so more people can have positive outcomes like mine and find renewed life on the other side. And when I make it to Everest Base Camp it will be with each of you by my side. 

Fred Hutch has made some of the world’s most important medical advances — from developing bone marrow transplantation as a cure for leukemia, to pioneering powerful therapies that harness the immune system to fight cancer, to leading national and international initiatives that enable earlier cancer diagnoses and more effective treatments. This leading-edge research depends on private contributions that fuel novel studies, which have the power to make a profound difference.

Please click the “Donate” button and give to the Climb to Fight Cancer. Any amount you can give makes a difference to people and families facing deadly diseases. Your gift is 100 percent tax deductible and will fund extraordinary research, lifesaving discoveries, and cures. Thank you for your support and let's do this thing!
