Welcome to My Personal Page
I have been participating in the Big Climb for the past six years. I have challenged myself to climb the 1,311 steps to the top of the Columbia Tower each year because of Colton Matter, the brother of one of my former students, and the belief that we are getting closer to a cure. This year, the climb will be on Saturday, March 22nd. If you would like to make a donation, click on the DONATE button above. ALL donations are appreciated…no donation is too small!
I am happy to report that Colton is a sophomore in college this year, and thankfully he continues to be in remission and is doing well.
Colton Matter…he matters to me, and hopefully to you, too!
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!
