Please help me raise money for these great causes. I appreciate any and all donations. Thanks so much for being such great friends!!!
For over 50 years I have lived at or below sea level..yes I am a mermaid. I have always dreamed of climbing a mountain. It seems like the most beautiful place to see the world and be closest to God. I have hiked, camped, and done a lot of backpacking with my husband and my son Coley. We all love the outdoors and spend 90% of our time in nature. I have never had the opportunity to climb a real mountain.
I also love Africa and have spent a lot of time there with my family. I admire the people, their customs and the way they handle their struggles with such dignity on a daily basis. So, for me, climbing my first mountain in Africa just makes a lot of spiritual sense to me! And the fact that Coley asked me to climb with him makes it even more special..and on top of that we are dedicating our climb and our fundraising to my Dad who has been battling lung cancer for the past three years and has done it with such strength and grace he has been my inspiration and my hero.
Dad and I talk every day, but never about Dad's cancer, only about how proud he is of Coley and me as we prepare for the climb of our lives. When it is him fighting the battle of his life that is all that is on our minds. Funny, how we give strength to each other. So, for the love of my Dad and for the money I can raise to help young cancer patients focus on something other than their pain and struggles I am committed to climbing this mountain and making it an experience I will cherish with my son for the rest of my life.
Please help us in any way you can. Just $19. would be amazing. That is $1. for every 1,000 feet that my feet will climb Kilimanjaro. Thank you all very much!
