Exum Guide Bean Bowers Battling Cancer

Bean and Helen Bowers on the summit of Fitzroy

Long time Jackson mountain guide, Bean Bowers is currently battling stage 4 cancer in Denver, CO. Bean has guided for Exum since 2005 and before that guided for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides for many years.

Bean has accomplished amazing climbing feats, mostly in the Patagonia Range of South America. He has an intense, and at the same time, endearing personality. His intensity appears to be helping him in his fight against cancer, however, he and his wife Helen need some help.

Please send happy and healing thoughts their way and check out the website, beanfever.com that has been created by their friends, They are faced with mounting debt as the treatment goes on, and a fundraiser has been planned for April 28th in Boulder, CO. Details are on the beanfever website.

Our thoughts are with them as they continue the battle. We hope to see Bean and Helen back in the Tetons soon.
