About Me 

 

My name is Alec More and I am a high school senior. I consider myself an adventurous person, so I jumped at the opportunity to participate when my father told me about Luke’s 2019 Climb to Fight Cancer. Not only is the climb for a great cause, but the chance to spend time with my father and the rest of Luke’s team while on Mount Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft) was one that I could not pass up. I love spending time outdoors doing things like climbing and skiing, and I do my best to always be open to a new adventure.

 

Why am I doing this?

 

We live in a world today where cancer seems like an inevitability. Cancer is practically unavoidable, you either have it or know someone close to you that does. Cancer affects everyone. The scientists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center take an innovative and comprehensive approach to understanding many different types of cancer. The mission of Fred Hutch: the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. This mission is one I believe that everyone can get behind. As I have grown up close to a "Biotech guy" in my father, I have been able to gain an understanding of the influence of research dollars and the amazing developments in care that arise as a result. This climb will be a great opportunity for me to do my part in solving something that affects us all and causes widespread suffering.
