BENEFITING: RadiatingHope: Advancing Cancer Care Globally
Radiating Hope is a nonprofit organization dedicated to combatting cancer in poor areas. Usually in developed countries, cancer can be caught earlier due to greater accessibiltiy to primary care and health screenings. However, in places like Tanzania, people just don't have this access. That's why I'm joining Radiating Hope to raise money for their cause of delivering better cancer care and education to countries with underserved populations. Most people don't realize this, and I didn't until a few months ago, that cancer is one of the greatest killers in Africa - thus, the mission of Radiating Hope is to fight this continental problem.
My goal is to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This is a 7-day climb and is a rigorous journey, but I am super excited for! Check out this day-by-day video that I watch whenever I get nervous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNB_HBC4G74
