This is a remarkable story of a stage IV lung cancer survivor, who chose to fight his demons by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,656 mile journey from Mexico to Canada making way through California, Oregon and Washington. This true story takes you on an exciting journey stirring fears and emotions mixed with the author's wisdom, humor and the reach for hope. Peaks and Valleys A Hike of Hope is a must read for anyone affected by cancer.

Join me on my journey

On July 31st, 2006, I retired for the 2nd time and one week later was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. In Nov of 2010, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had my prostate removed. In Dec of 2010, I was diagnosed with throat cancer and surgery removed 95% of the tumor and radiation was used to complete the therapy.

In 2011 thru 2016, I hiked 2310 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). I plan on hiking again in 2017 and hope to complete the remaining 346 miles. For those not familiar with the PCT, it begins at the Mexican border near San Diego and ends at the Canadian border above Seattle.

So, join me on this adventure. I am dedicating this trek to all those who preceded me in the battle to conquer lung cancer. Please make a contribution for the American Lung Association and support my hike.

NOTE: John came to the American Lung Association in August of 2010 asking how we could work together to raise awareness around lung cancer and raise vital funds for research while incorporating his love of the great outdoors and backpacking. John's goal from the beginning was to raise $10 for every mile that he would hike along the Pacific Crest Trail...a grand total of 2656 miles. He has already exceeded this goal by raising over $28,737 which has been designated for the American Lung Association's Central Florida Lung Cancer Endowment Fund. These funds will be used strictly for lung cancer research in Central Florida.

Please help us to further exceed this goal of by supporting this most worthy cause.
