My 2013 Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike was dedicated to building awareness about thyroid cancer and helping to provide resources for past, present and future thyroid cancer patients.
In 2006, as a newly diagnosed thyroid cancer patient, the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association (ThyCa) was an incredibly valuable resource to me. Whether I was learning about this cancer on their website, attending a conference, or downloading their low-iodine cookbook, ALL of it was FREE.
Because of you, I raised over $1,000 for ThyCa! Thank You!
But now the adventure continues. I often have folks offer to send me care packages but coordinating such generosity from the trail can be rather tricky. The easiest way for you to support me is to contribute to the town binge fund. Town binge is when hikers devour as much food as possible before heading back out to the trail. Like pizza and burgers and french fries and beer. These town food experiences are often so profound that we hikers take pictures of such masterpieces.
