3rd time’s a charm. I have yet to summit Rainier, but my friends and family who have had cancer haven’t given up, so neither will I.
For the fifth year in a row, I am teaming up with Jodi's Climb For Hope, to raise money to fund breast cancer vaccine research. Since its inception, Climb For Hope has helped over 100 climbers to summit mountains on 4 continents, while raising over $800,000. We just celebrated our 10th anniversary!
Everyone in my life knows someone with cancer. This horrible disease has affected us all. I hope you can help us work to eradicate this disease.
The money we raise will go directly to the work of Dr. Leisha Emens, an eminent researcher at Johns Hopkins who is working on a ground braking vaccine.
Think about that: a vaccine for breast cancer! This year, we will return to Mt. Rainier, one of the highest most rugged peaks in the Cascade range, in Washington state. It is very challenging physically and emotionally.
I have been on this mountain twice before and have yet to summit. Will this be my year?
Every step of this 14,416 foot technical climb will be tiring and difficult. Yet, I know that’s what many women receiving cancer treatment experience daily.
I’m climbing so we can get closer to the day when no one will have to fear the words, "You have breast cancer." Please support our efforts with a tax-deductible donation by clicking the Donate To This Fundraiser button.
Much Love, Danny
