Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello Family and Friends!
Due to the present pandemic, Big Climb Seattle will now join with other LLS chapters throughout the country to participate in Big Virtual Climb on June 13th. We will all be climbing and keeping track of our steps somewhere in our own community.
Although fundraising seemed to be on hold for awhile, now it has resumed!
Your contributions will help find cures for blood cancers.
And, you’ll help me reach my goal of $11,000.
This will be my 5th climb since losing my son Tim to lymphoma on December 14, 2014. Each year I’ve received more support than the previous year. Last year, through the generosity of family, friends, and even friends of friends, I raised over $8,000. This put me in the “Elite 30” category! Imagine that! Out of 6,000 climbers, I was #21 in fundraising totals. Because of that achievement, I was allowed to decorate floor #52 in honor of Tim. This thrilled my heart. Please support me with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button next to this text. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers. I am truly grateful to all who have contributed in the past and hope to have your support again this year.
Thank you so much,
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!
