Any Mountain Everest
What could be more awe-inspiring than surviving ovarian cancer?
How about surviving ovarian cancer and summiting Mount Everest?
Prevention is the tallest goal of any cancer. Ovarian cancer – the deadliest women’s cancer – has no early detection test or universal means of prevention. This spring, we are sending a group of ovarian cancer survivors, medical providers and caregivers to the rooftop of the world to put the first ovarian cancer survivors ever on the 29,029 foot summit.
We strive to raise 2.9 million dollars for ovarian cancer prevention and early detection research and awareness. We hope to bring awareness about ovarian cancer risk to 2.9 million people.

Meet Jess Wedel
The Any Mountain Everest climb will be led by ovarian cancer survivor & accomplished mountain guide Jess Wedel. Jess made national news when she tried to summit Everest in 2021 only to be thwarted by COVID sweeping the sherpa community.
Funds raised from the Any Mountain Everest Expedition go directly to ovarian cancer early detection and prevention research and awareness efforts.

Summiting Ovarian Cancer
Through Creativity & Research
Our creative projects play a key part in helping us raise awareness and spread the message to every woman.
There is an incredible team of gynecologic oncology leaders from around the country leading our research efforts.
Our Everest Team is literally summiting Mt. Everest to raise funds and bring awareness to the fight against ovarian cancer
Early Detection is Everything
About 20% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have a hereditary tendency to develop the disease. Early detection is everything. Take the quiz to find out if you are at risk.
You Can Help Us Reach the Summit
We have always said that this project is like climbing the Mt Everest of ovarian cancer. It’s huge, but it can be summited if we work together and just put one foot forward at a time.
Every donation pushes us one step closer to finding the answers we need to change the future of ovarian cancer. The Any Mountain Expedition Team is a unique group of ovarian cancer experts from all around the United States. Their research into detection and prevention will save countless lives.
- Provide access to genetic testing
- Increase awareness about cancer risk (particularly for diverse communities)
- Develop better predictors of risk for sporadic (non-inherited) ovarian cancer
- Develop an early detection test
- Research on new surgical options to prevent ovarian cancer in high-risk women and preserve ovarian function longer
