The mission of Jodi's Climb for Hope is to find a viable treatment for breast cancer. This organization has donated over $600,000 to the research occurring at Johns Hopkins University today. The money raised goes towards the work being done by Dr. Leisha Emens specifically. Her hope is to create a vaccine that could one day prevent breast cancer for those at a high risk.
This year, I will be climbing to the summit of Mt. Adams (12,280') with a group of amazing women in memory and in honor of those who have been impacted by breast cancer. I am climbing in memory of my Grandma Gardner who passed away when I was four from this deadly disease and in honor of a woman close to me who recently overcame Stage 3 breast cancer in a remarkably short time.
We have all pledged to raise at least $2,000 towards this great cause and I welcome you to contribute in any way you can. Let's work together to find a cure!
