Climbing in memory of Scott Tillotson
I’m back! I took last year off from The Big Climb to focus on finishing up my own journey. That being said this year I am signed up and ready to charge up those 1311 steps a happier, healthier person!
My brother lost his battle with Leukemia on July 15, 2011. When I think back on the time that has passed since his passing I think of how lucky we were to have him for 2 years after his diagnosis. After all, he was told the first time he was admitted to the hospital that they didn't know how he was still alive he had so much of the evil disease running through his body. The doctors didn't know my brother though, they didn't know that no one would ever be allowed to tell him he couldn't do something, or that he had to do something a certain way. That just wasn't him...my sister said it best when she said he had a unique way of looking at things. That he did. I love you big brother and I will never forget you and all the love and support you gave me. Now it is my turn...my turn to do something, my turn to make a difference. Will you help me make a difference by making a donation. I appreciate 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.
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!
