My journey continues today with another support group, Team Survivor Northwest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. TSNW offers free, year-round fitness programs and events for every woman who has been diagnosed with a cancer at any time during her life. In celebration of life, I will join the TSNW team to climb Mt. Adams! Mt. Adams is the 2nd highest peak in Washington State at 12,276 feet. I’ll be taking the first steps of the climb July 23, 2019. Whoo hoo!
In my pursuit of the Mt Adams summit, I pledged (AKA ask others for $$) to raise $2,500 for TSNW. I would be so honored if you choose to be part of my support team. In doing so, you will help me summit AND make it possible for me and women diagnosed with cancer to take back some control of our physical and emotional health.
Life can pull us in so many directions it feels like we’re being torn apart at times—quite literally. Remove this, burn that, poison the rest and hope we emerge to live a longer, healthy, quality life. Some do. Some don’t. We all know these people: our loved ones, family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, loyal companions. If you are unable to give at this time, I understand. Instead, please give me the gift of knowing you will get your recommended cancer screening tests on time and your annual physical exams. It can save your life.
In appreciation of your financial donation, and if requested, I will carry and hang a Tibetan prayer flag at the summit on your behalf in honor and remembrance of someone in your life. As an animal lover myself, please feel free to include your 4-legged companions.
