$400.00Raised

Please join me in supporting my fifth "Let Every Woman Know" Climbathon. The Alyeska Climbathon is a Gynecologic Cancer Awareness event that raises money for the fight against women's cancer.

WHY DO I PARTICIPATE? People near and dear to me have died from GYN cancers. Other friends have been diagnosed with GYN cancer and successfully treated or have had genetic testing which guides regular screenings. Ovarian cancer took my dear, dear friend Ellen, the "Ellie"  in our team ELLIE's ANGELS, from my life in 2015. GYN cancers are often silent or symptoms get missed until it is too late. GYN cancers affect young and menopausal women alike. My neighbor was diagnosed and successfully treated in her early 20's. Ovarian cancer took another friend and left 2 teenage sons motherless through formative years of their lives. Another friend was informed enough seek genetic counseling and learned she had the BRCA gene. With surgery she found her cancer early. As a Nurse Practitioner I screened for cervical cancer - I have seen how screening and early treatment saves lives. I have also witnessed the decline in cervical cancer risk since the HPV vaccine has been recommended. WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE?  Because education and screening saves lives.    
Thank you for joining the Alyeska Climbathon effort!
