A Princeton woman and cancer survivor, Leslie Perron, heads to Japan in July as part of a group slated to climb Mount Fuji to raise funds and awareness for Multiple Myeloma research.
Participating in the climb in a group of 19 are six patients living with the disease, along with caregivers, a doctor and advocates. Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma is a collaborative effort among CURE Media Group, Takeda Oncology and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
“I feel like I have to do this now, because I can, and do it for those who can’t,” Perron said.
Mount Fuji, at 12,389 feet, is the highest mountain in Japan and is a dormant volcano.
