BENEFITING: RadiatingHope: Advancing Cancer Care Globally

ORGANIZER: Radiating

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2017

Patti and Dave Petersen

THE STORY:

Radiating Hope wrote -

Radiating Hope- Our mission is to update and provide cancer care to developing countries. Cancer continues to be a leading cause of death in developing countries and it is because they simply lack proper treatment machines.  We plan on improving cancer care by providing life saving radiation machines and training. We climb mountains in order to show the world that we can do hard things! By creating a team of super-advocates, we will climb to the the base camp of Mount Everest, and in the process, we  will help the Nepalese (and other developing countries) overcome cancer!

We are climbing to the base camp of Mount Everest!! 

17,600’: summit elevation of Everest Base Camp. 9,350’: Lukla Nepal elevation, start of the expedition.

The Radiating Hope Prayer Flags will reach the summit of Mt. Everest in May 2017!!!

DEDICATE A PRAYER FLAG!
The prayer flags have a long tradition of representing strength, hope, and
well-being for the people they honor. It is traditionally believed that as the mountain winds blow the flags, and the fragile threads slowly unravel away from the flags and blow into the breeze, that this action represents a thought of hope, strength, and well-being for the person it honors. We’ve watched the threads of the Radiating Hope prayer flags blow in the high mountain winds on many mountains and peaks around the world, honoring cancer patients in their journey through cancer. The time has come to take these well-traveled flags to their final peak, Mt. Everest. There we will perform a traditional prayer flag ceremony at the base camp of Mt. Everest.

My mother passed away in December 2016 at 95. We will be spreading her ashes mixed with my father's who preceded her in death by 3 years at their 4 favorite camping, fishing and hiking vacation spots. A prayer flag on this journey will be a nice addition to this request from my parents. 1 year ago
