Name:Julie Ryan
Hometown:Camas, WA
Reason for climbing:Family Member with MM

My name is Julie Ryan and I'm a 44 year old living in Camas, Washington. My mom, Linda Robertson was diagnosed with MM in 2002. She is doing well and has a great team working to keep her that way. Keeping up the progress of fighting this disease is my sole motivation for this climb. Having said that, it is something I had planned to do with my husband a decade ago- until I learned I was pregnant! My twin sister, Jana, is doing the climb as well. It will be the first summit for us both.
