Miscellaneous: I had the privilege of Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Jan of this year with four Multiple Myeloma patients, my life will be forever changed by the strength and determination of those patients, that against all odds undertook climbing the highest free standing mountain in the world. They did it to raise money through the MMRF to help find a CURE for this intolerable disease.
My entire life I have been surrounded by Cancer from my family members to working in cancer publishing and now as the Director Cancer Patient Education at CURE Magazine.
This time I am honored to have my wife Mariana join me to raise money for this important cause, Mariana’s has made it her personal mission to help educate the Hispanic community about early detection, healthy life style. 24% of all cancer patients in the USA are Hispanic and as Mariana says ”Knowledge is Power”
