“I DO have a say and that I CAN help those without a voice” – Marissa Emery
My name is Marissa Emery and I am a lost, broke college student: I do not know what I want to do with my life, and I cannot decide on many things. The one thing that doesn't quite seem to change is my passion to help those without a voice. No one has a say in whether or not they will get cancer, but they do have a say in what they want to do after their diagnosis. I've climbed many mountains in the past (figuratively speaking), but getting to the top of Kilimanjaro will be the mountain to end all mountains. When I get to the top, and see the entire world in front of me, I will know that I DO have a say and that I CAN help those without a voice.
Each year we take a team to Africa and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in honor of all the lives touched by cancer. Honor a loved one who has fought cancer by sponsoring a CancerClimber today! Please add the names of your loved ones in the “comment section” as they will be climbing with us on Jul 19th all 19, 340ft to the summit! Their names will be on our Team CancerClimber flag that will remain at the summit to commemorate their struggle.
100% of the funds raised by each climber go towards:
- developing a mobile camp for young adults with cancer
- personal visits to patients by survivors to inspire hope
- adventure grants
- inspiring all those touched by cancer to focus on LIVING
The mobile camp for young adults will travel to children’s hospitals around the country providing them with the experience of a “personal expedition” while instilling confidence through a safe environment. Counseling and support to the children and their families will also be provided.
Our Mission is to help those touched by cancer by focusing on living an active, healthy lifestyle. To learn more about CancerClimber and how to get involved, please visit http://www.cancerclimber.org/ or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
