Linda Morton

In 2005, Linda Morton joined the Breast Cancer Fund’s Climb Against the Odds expedition of Mt. Rainier to honor her close friend Debbie, who had passed away after a 15-year struggle with breast cancer, and Linda has been on every climb since, fundraising more than $117,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund. She has become an inspiring leader and a great friend to the members of each expedition, and her dedication is a testament to our shared vision of a future where the environmental causes of breast cancer have been identified and eliminated. The Breast Cancer Fund honored Linda in 2009 with the Andrea Ravinett Martin Strong Voices Award at our Heroes Tribute gala.
