I'm the one in the orange sweatshirt - Case (Colton's brother)
Hello! I will be climbing for a CURE in Big Climb Seattle on Sunday, March 24th - this will be my 10th year in a row . Please support me with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button above this text. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
Why I climb?
I climb because cancer doesn't deserve to win. It is cruel - it steals joy, it steals hope, it steals happiness, it steals life and no one should have to endure it's nonsense.
My brother, Colton, was diagnosed with Leukemia when I was 7 years old (just starting 2nd grade) so pretty much I don't remember much about life before cancer invaded. What I do remember is that I have looked up to my brother my whole life - and still do.
We must cure cancer so brothers can just be brothers and not have to worry about cancer stealing them away.
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!
