In December of 2008, the last thing that crossed my mind was cancer. A couple years before, in June 2006, I donated my left kidney to my younger brother who suffers from Lupus. It took over a year to recover to where I felt strong enough to hit the gym again. By that December, I felt and looked strong.
Greener Pastures is honored to support FIRST DESCENTS, a non-profit organization that offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure. The experience is designed to empower the participants to climb, paddle, and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives, and connect with others doing the same. We feel their goals align perfectly with Greener Pastures’ vision to fight cancer for a better tomorrow while enjoying today.
