took first prize in the Great Escape Contest.
Last month, we posted about the YETI Coolers Great Escape Photo Contest, in which entrants were asked to submit a picture that showed why they needed a “Great Escape.” The grand prize was a YETI Tundra 50 Cooler and other gear, a fishing trip with PRO Outfitters to North Fork Crossing in Montana, and an Orvis 6-weight Helios Outfit.
The winning photo was by Tayler Ryan Richard and showed her husband, Steve, undergoing radiation treatment. Here’s the description from Tayler:
After 6 years of health problems and misdiagnoses he was diagnosed with a massive brain tumor in January 2012. Since that time he has undergone 3 brain surgeries, radiation and a vocal chord surgery (his third). He deserves a Great Escape after everything he has been through for the last several years.
Congratulations to the winners, and good luck to Steve in his battle. You can see the other winners on the YETI Facebook page.
