As a breast cancer survivor, I know well how climbing a mountain is a metaphor that can be used to describe the cancer experience. For the next two weeks, my colleagues and I will be following the journey of a special group that has already climbed that metaphorical mountain, as they climb Mount Kilimanjaro together with a doctor who has treated some of them, long-time Society volunteer Richard Deming. Dr. Deming is Founder and Chairman of Above + Beyond Cancer, and is Medical Director of Mercy Cancer Center in Des Moines, Iowa. We are thrilled to share his updates on The Road to More Birthdays Blog as he leads this remarkable trip.
