The Journey Continues...
In 2007, Francesco Lucarelli traveled to Africa and scaled Mt.
Kilimanjaro to honor his mother who lost her battle to breast cancer in 2001.
Since then, the team has climbed nine domestic and two international mountains.
Climbing a mountain is a metaphor that many cancer survivors use to
describe their cancer experience. Only survivors themselves can articulate the
overwhelming sense of accomplishment they feel when they succeed in reaching
the “summit” of their cancer journey. But what every survivor will tell you is
that, during the ascent, his or her perspective on life is forever changed.
The Mount Marcy Challenge in 2018 will be the 12th annual
Climb to Beat Breast Cancer. Mount Marcy is located in the Adirondack High
Peaks near Lake Placid, New York. At 5,344 feet, it is the highest point in the
state. Located in northern New York, Mount Marcy offers views of 43 high peaks
throughout the Adirondacks.
