Mt Kilimanjaro!!!!!!!

I'm excited to announce that I've been selected to be one of 6 patients on  15 person team that will be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in February, 2017. The climb is being put on by the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. It's an honor and will be quite a challenge. I'm excited and nervous.

Mt Kilimanjaro is over 19,000 feet high. I'm always low on blood, so that worries me a bit. We'll make sure my counts as up before I leave on the trip. I've got to get in great shape and I have to raise at least $10,000. I have work to do!!!

Here is the link for my MMRF fundraising page and to get more details on my effort and reasons for accepting this challenge.
