Stomping Out Cancer One Step At A Time !
Climb. Conquer. Cure.
March 26th, 2023
Hello! I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle this year. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
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.
So here's my "WHY?" The picture above has three of my most favorite people in the world...my father, and my good friends- Forrest, and Terry. As many of you know, Forrest and Terry worked for my Dad since 1976. To this day I don't know two people that worked harder or were more dedicated to their job . Unfortunately, we lost Forrest two years ago to cancer. Terry has been battling cancer for five years. Each time I see him he has a smile on his face and says "Lorae, I'm still fighting!"Forrest and Terry have brought so much joy to my life and those around them. I will be climbing on behalf of Terry and in memory of Forrest because I know they would both do it for me. Help me stomp out cancer and support this amazing cause. Thank you for stopping by my page, thank you for your support and most of all THANK YOU for the gift of your friendship.
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!
