I’m Luke Timmerman. I've been writing about advances in cancer research for about 15 years, and have been climbing mountains almost that long. By combining these two passions, I hope to raise significant money and awareness for a world-class institution, to support my hometown of Seattle, and to support science itself at a moment of tremendous possibility. Join me on this quest to the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world.

Donate today to support the Climb to Fight Cancer at Fred Hutch!
