THE STORY:

This year, about 22,280 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer. About 14,240 women will die from it. In case these numbers sound abstract, consider that a woman's risk of getting ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 75 -- that's 1 in 75 mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, wives, and beloved friends. It's also 1 in 75 sassy independent ladies who don't like to be defined in terms of their relationships to others... but you get the point. Way too many women are dying of a cancer we're still only beginning to understand. This fundraiser caught my eye because of climbing. I like to rock climb, wanted to explore outdoor spots in Colorado, and wanted to do good at the same time. I am lucky not to have a personal story relating to ovarian cancer, and so far the people I love have all escaped this devastating disease. But the risk is there, if not for those I love than for the people THEY love. I believe we shouldn't only support causes that are directly relevant to us, but rather causes that are relevant to the health and humanity as a whole. So help me help those in need. Help me help those searching for a cure. Even a little donation gives courage to the thousands of tenacious doctors, researchers, caregivers, patients, survivors, and volunteers who are fighting this disease, and that... that makes me want to climb a great big rock and shout "THANK YOU!" from high up top. Which I will. Me + boulder + you + a cure. We can do this together.
