Chris Jenson's Fundraiser:

Climb Against Cancer

THE STORY:

I am raising money for RadiatingHope in the fight against cancer in less developed parts of the world.  PLEASE DONATE - $25 is a great start!!

MY PURPOSE:

By raising money for this great organization (my target is $25,000) I will be able to join the RadiatingHope team on a 7 day climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania Africa. The entirety of money collected here goes to RadiatingHope. I will be purchasing my plane ticket and all the required gear for the trip on my own.

DETAILS:

In the US there are over 1,400 cancer care facilities or about 1 for every 220,000 people. In less developed countries some countries have zero cancer care facilities. Tanzania Africa has 2 cancer care facilities for the population of 40Million people, or 1 facility for every 20Million people.

I am raising money for RadiatingHope, a non-profit organization working to make a difference in the battle against cancer. Radiating Hope is a 100% volunteer-run, cancer-cure focused nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Its mission is to improve cancer care, specifically radiation oncology care, around the globe. The charity was founded by mountain-climbing radiation oncologists who wanted to help cancer patients around the world. The charity provides radiation equipment to countries where cancer care is hard to find and optimal treatments are sparse. The group works by forging partnerships with medical professionals and equipment manufacturers.

RadiatingHope is currently working on delivering a Linear Accelerator that was donated by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. to Tanzania. The total cost will be about $200k to get this donated machine up and running. Many corporate partners have contributed along the way to help make this happen. This project will bring hope for generations to come.  .  I met the young girls in the picture in Africa.  The children are filled with so much energy and personality.  They ate all the candy I had with me.  If cancer strikes any one of them, they will be faced with a short life of no treatment and significant pain.
