I'd like to know how to donate for the Mt. Shasta climb, and would guess other readers would, too but there is no mention of it that I can see. How can I get in touch with my fellow survivor?

Sara, congrats to you, too! I would search on the Team In Training Leukemia and Lymphoma website with her name, she may be doing it through them. My husband works with the program and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them. He did a a program with Team in Training some years ago. Alternately, I would contact the author! best wishes
