Welcome to the “Prepare to Climb” blog. This is the place to check regularly for updates as I get ready to head for the “hill.”

Don’t worry, we’re not summiting – just to base camp. I’m an experienced camper and have done a fair bit of climbing, but nothing that truly qualifies me for a summit – as my parents so worriedly pointed out in a recent email. Seems they thought I was really going to just try and head straight for the top with out any real experience or expert training. I wonder how they got that idea?

Anyway, stay tuned, and get ready to send stong leg muscle vibes and worm thoughts come October.

In October 2007 Eran Thomson, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Prepare to Live, in conjunction with the Love, Hope, Strength Foundation will climb Mt. Everest to raise awareness and funds for Young Adults coping with cancer. This event will be filmed by MTV and The BBC’s acclaimed documentary team and presents a tremendous and unique media opportunity for any interested sponsors.

As proud an achievement as this climb will be, the harder challenge may be raising the $25,000 needed to go. Please make an online donation now and make this mission a complete success.Your contribution will go towards raising awareness of Young Adult cancer issues though both Prepare to Live and LHSF as well as offset the associated costs of this once-in-a-lifetime undertaking.

Prepare to Live is a 50(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization. As such we rely entirely on gifts, charitable contributions and bequests to exist. If not for generous individuals, trusts, companies and other organizations, Young Adults coping with cancer would be left without our unique and valuable resources. Please give generously.

Contributions to Prepare to Live are in most cases tax-deductible. Please click here for information and consult your local tax expert for details.
