Hey folks. This isn't a message asking questions or looking for support and i feel kinda bad about it because everyone needs help and i wish i could provide it to all of you...

i'm a 2 time cancer survivor and i've been trying to inspire people around the world. it's my calling in life i believe. i honestly do. i was once given 3 months to live (1st cancer) and 2 weeks to live (2nd cancer). 11 years later i became the first cancer survivor/patient to summit Mt. Everest. I'm trying to let people with cancer know miracles do happen and they should never give up. if anyone has any suggestions as to how i could get the word out to the world please let me know. i'm currently working on the highest peak on each continent around the world. On each peak i take with me and leave a flag that says "dedicated to all those affected by cancer in this small world!! keep climbing!!" on Everest i took a flag to the summit and left it there forever commemorating the struggle of cancer patients worldwide. in otherwords, i wasn't alone on the top of the world... every single one of you were there with me helping me, giving me the energy needed to make it 29,035 feet into the sky! thank you!!

So if anyone knows of a PR company, agency, or even a manager who could help me, please let me know!?

Write a book! Call it "Climbing Mt. Cancer".

Hm. that's a great idea. I've been working on finding a book agent to help me pitch it to a publisher. i've been told that's the only way to do it... know anyone? hahaha.. and thank you so much for the suggestion and that title is great. i was thinking "Attitude to Altitude" or something like that, but yours has a nice ring to it ;)
