๐Ÿ”— This Baylor alumna (and ovarian cancer survivor) just climbed Mount Everest

In late May, Wedel became the first ovarian cancer survivor to summit Everest. Her team raised more than half a million dollars for research, but she says hearing from other cancer survivors might have been the best part of the experience. For instance, one woman said she followed Jessโ€™ journey while in the hospital completing her own treatment; watching Jess gave her strength and hope to keep going. For Jess, having that impact is an honor.

Jess was my guide up Rainier, and she was an inspiration there too!
