Hi there. On June 13th, we climb as one as our Big Climb is now virtual and nationwide. We plan to hike the 1000 feet equivalent of the Columbia and Salesforce towers.
In 2001 I was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. I spent 120 days at Swedish Hospital getting massive amounts of chemotherapy and eventually a stem cell transplant. I am lucky to be alive today as the survival for people with my diagnosis was only 25%. In the past 3 years, though, there are ten new drugs supported by LLS coming to market which will allow targeted therapy for patients based on their leukemia. Research is crucial. It saved my life. Now I want to help others.

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.
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!
