Welcome to My Personal Page
TEAM EDGAR is back for our 2nd annual participation in THE BIG CLIMB 2019 to fight lymphoma and other blood cancers! It's been 3 years since Edgar passed and we all need to step up...no pun intended...and support the FIGHT AGAINST CANCER!!! THE BIG CLIMB raised over $3M last year and we know we can raise more this year!!! Help us win this battle so one day we can all say we did our part to end cancer forever!! We laughed and we cried, and we will do it all over again until we don't have to do it anymore!!! So once again we will be participating in the Annual Big Climb Seattle 2019, thank you Jamie, on Sunday, March 24th in honor of my husband, who passed away from complications associated from lymphoma, 3 years ago, on Nov 23, 2015. I will be climbing to support everyone suffering from this horrible disease, and to hopefully save others in the future. With my sister and brother-in- law, my niece and nephews, and our friends, we are walking and running up 70 flights to raise funds!!!! Please support me with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button in the link on this page. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against all blood cancers.
I, with my fellow TEAM EDGAR participants, thank you for your support!”
What is the Big Climb?
The Big Climb is a stairclimb up the Columbia Center - the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle. There are 69 floors of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients go through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The video at the bottom of my page captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.
Who is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Every day, more than 347 LLS sponsored researchers come closer to the goal of finding a cure for leukemia and related blood cancers. Locally, LLS funds 10 researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enables us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause!
