Support Me

When my aunt was first diagnosed with cancer, her prognosis was 3 months, but because of research, she was with us for 3 more years. She is my motivation for starting this fundraiser. In her final days, I realized how terrible this disease is and how many people it affects. I was too young to do anything then. Now, I can do something and that is to increase awareness about how cancer research saves lives and raise funds to support that research.   

For every rock climbing competition I participate in, I will make a donation to the V Foundation. My hope is that you will match my donation, beat it or join the Climb2CrushCancer team and start a page of your own to support the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization whose mission is to declare Victory Over Cancer®. No matter the amount, every donation matters. Thank you for participating!
