Climbing Makes Life Easier

By Vanessa Weber

Some time ago I told you how I found my passion for climbing in a very difficult time. My mother got seriously ill with cancer in 2016, died, and that’s when I got into climbing. https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/story/climbing-puts-a-smile-on-your-face/ Sometimes I wonder how much a person actually has to endure. On the wall I am free of all worries and I have no obligations other than myself. Climbing makes many things in my life easier. It has carried me the last few years and given me strength. Because in times of mourning or serious illness and sincere love we feel our existence the strongest. It becomes much more conscious and clear to us than ever before. That’s what happened to me again when I found out about my father’s cancer a few weeks ago. Luckily, the cancer is not as aggressive as it was with my mother and, above all, it was recognized in good time. And I’m very proud that my dad is such a great fighter and has also found a new love. So I advise you all – go to the check – up! Even if I have to be there for my family and don’t go climbing as often as usual, I feel the closeness and connection more than ever. Climbing makes life easier! I wish the same for you!
